Sponge Bob Square Pants died in BP oil spill!
Here’s a fun one to share with your friends!
British Petroleum has a gag order on their staff. During this cleanup, no one can tell you what’s really going on. So… all those dead animals, all that failure on stopping the flow of oil…. yeah, they can’t

talk about it. Additionally, BP is paying for sponsored ads, so whenever you search for a term like “Oil Spill” their ad shows up at the top, like so (see image on left).
Their BP ad (the one with the yellow background) costs them money for each click. It takes you to their page, where they get to present the information however they want to… i.e. “BP cares, loves you, are the good guys, and are really making the world a better place…. and a little oil in your sea food is good for you!”
Now, I may be paraphrasing a little bit, but you get the idea.
The sad part is that millions of people do not know that it is an ad. They search for “Oil Spill” (or any other term relating to the worst ecological catastrophe in history), they see “BP”, click on it, and think they are seeing the real news, and thus believe it.
So, to show BP that this campaign is just a waste of their money, and that people are smarter than that, just keep searching for Oil Spill, and clicking on BP’s ads! Then just hit the back button on your browser, you’re back in the Google page, and you can click again… rinse and repeat!
Send your friends to this page! With enough people doing this, maybe BP can invest their resources into cleaning the environment, rather than just trying to bully us into thinking that everything’s peachy.
