BP comments on oil spill

(A&P Press, NYC)

British Petroleum released a short statement commenting on their massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico:
“We at British Petroleum wish to apologize for the unfortunate incident in the Gulf of Mexico. There was a misprint in a corporate directive, where the word “drill” was replaced by the word “spill” although in some places “drill” was replaced by the word dill”. So while the spill in the Gulf of Mexico is disastrous, we have had success harvesting dill*. We at British Petroleum promise to go over our proof reading specifications, so this kind of thing won’t happen again. BP: Beyond Petroleum
