  • Right now, the scariest people on Earth are the "Big Boys." All of them. BP has destroyed the Gulf of Mexico, and now they're busy trying to do the 'public relations' patchwork in order to lower the eyebrows of the American citizens.

    Won't work. We know what you did and who you are. Welcome to BP. Smile. The world is watching.
