    Oh yes.... those shrimp and dolphin, er' I mean tuna will be save to eat. When you go to the super market, just look for the BP brand in the freezer section of your super market. You can trust BP Brand shrimp and other fine sea foods. LOL

    To the shrimper that said he will eat the shrimp right in front of us. Well go for it then in three months or so we will watch you die from coexist poisoning cancer right in front of us. The water is poisoned so is the sea food don't et it you will get sick.
    BP and any who work for them are evil I just watched a video where a coast guard Guy says yep he knows he is breathing in poison however he needs his job and is not allowed to say any thing to any one about how dangerous it is. Our government dose not care about the people anymore. They are helping BP kill millions of Americans with a slow death of poison.
