New York - Exxon Mobil announced it was selling it shares of the Gulf of Mexico for ten pesos to the government of Mexico, because they don't want the bad PR from not caring enough about the environment.
"This sale doesn't mean that we won't exploit the poor and needy anymore by whatever means we feel are needed, because we know everyone needs oil, but this sale does wonders for our image." Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exon Mobil, said in press release.
"At Exon Mobil we are committed to helping our shareholders get rich and our public image get better by corporate policies I create. This sale, while very good for Mexico and very costly for Exon Mobile, will go a long ways in creating the illusion that Exon Mobile is concerned with the environment and dangers of offshore drilling." Mr. Tillerson said.
The sale will mean that Exxon Mobil won't incur the risk involved with offshore drilling in the Gulf Of Mexico, because BP made it clear to everyone that drilling for oil in the ocean can be bad for everyone involved.
Mexican officials said that they plan to use the Gulf of Mexico oil rigs left by the sale as a tourist attraction.
They haven't released how much it will cost for a weekly stay on the rigs will cost, but they did promise to use the money to help fight their own rising health cost associated with the oil spill in the gulf.
