WTF: BP CEO Says Last Year Was One Of Their Best

There are few ways to approach this without starting off in all caps, so let’s just go with a quote: BP CEO Bob Dudley claims that “if you put aside this Macondo incident, 2009 was the best year we’d had, and 2010 was also heading in that direction.”

Yes, Mr. Dudley (in one of the most boneheaded statements in recent memory) seems to think that the worst oil spill in history doesn’t have an impact on how well the year went for BP. Of course, Dudley is most likely referring to profits and company growth in this statement, and not to the 13 lives lost in the ordeal, or the catastrophic damage to the wildlife and coastal areas near the spill. But is that any surprise? The explosion was caused in the first place by neglect from cutting corners in order to save money, so the fact that BP would still be focused solely on profits makes sense.

So you’re right, Bob. If you ignore the Deepwater Horizon incident, 2010 was one of your best years. Also, if you put aside the fact that Jeffrey Daumer killed and ate people, he wasn’t a bad guy. If you put aside the fact that her music is terrible, Ke$ha is one of the greatest artists of all time. If you put aside the vast infinity of the reaches of space, then the universe isn’t that big.

If you put aside that statement, then you’re not a complete dope.
