image for BP: Catastrophy Averted, Oil in Gulf was Actually Chocolate!
Good Ship Lollypop, new Rig Names for BP

BP announced a study today that the oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico, was actually Dark Chocolate, not crude oil. Today as retiring CEO Tony Hayward spoke to a Parliament committee concerned about the North Sea.

"There is absolutely, no reason to fear something similar happening in the North Sea, when in fact nothing bad really happened in the Gulf of Mexico. Our study by New Orlean's 2nd grade class at "Our Lady of the Yellow Snow" in the colonies, proves that the spill was in fact 70% Dark Cacao."

Hayward then went on to point out that North Sea oil rigs would have new catchy names, given to them by British school children. Among them, "The Good Ship Lollip", "The Edmund Fitzgerald", The Titantic, and "The Devil's Triangle."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
