BP burning sea turtles

And in other news, apparently BP employees have been spotted stealing lollipops from toddlers.

Well, not yet. Just waitin' for it.

BTW, yes, a) the top hat is back, for whatever good it's going to do -- the blowout preventer is now leaning significantly, and if it breaks off the casing entirely, we have an oil volcano at the bottom of the sea, and b) the relief well is within 1,000 feet of being where it needs to be to shut down the gusher. Let's hope that the casing of the gusher is intact enough that it'll hold the mud and not let the mud ooze out into the surrounding rock formations, otherwise the only thing that'll stop the gusher is the final bleedout of the reservoir -- which BP at one time estimated to hold 2 billion barrels of oil.
