Oil spill parody - BP Spills Coffee

This is a video, produced by UCB Comedy and featured on Talking Points Memo that perfectly parodies the current BP oil spill situation by using a most clever metaphor - coffee.

It must be said that it is wonderful we are able to pull some humour out of what is naturally a very dire situation. Incase you missed it, it was recently announced that the estimates for the amount of oil that was leaking each day into the Gulf had been raised by around 100%, and that earlier estimates had been totally inaccurate. 

Perhaps at this late stage it would be good to pull some scientists away from making technology to extract oil, and put them to work creating technology to clean it up.
