New York - (Ass Mess): Oil industry graft specialist VECO was standing by for an emergency clean-up operation opportunity today as the New York Port Authority and Coast Guard were placed on maximum alert for yet another potential Exxon Valdez disater as an oil tanker, The White Sea, carrying nearly 20 million gallons of fuel grounded off New York City.
The vessel ran aground after losing streerage in an incident not that dissimilar to May's Alaskan grounding of the Empress of the North pleasure steamer.
Port authorities were quick to prepare for yet another potential massive eco disaster as Coast Guard assessed the emergency in New Jersey's Sandy Hook area early this morning.
The double-hulled vessel appeared to be firmly wedged into a sandbank as tugs attempted to free her and crew members deployed spill booms in a damage limitation exercise.
VECO honed its graft skills during a disastrous botch job covering up the Exxon Valdez catastrophe and has progressed ever since by hiring corrupt Alaskan legislators to act as its pimps in the US oil industry.
Further details about the White Sea's grounding are exepcted later.
