I’ve been avoiding coverage of the Gulf Coast oil spill because it is depressing as fuck. Sorry, I don’t like to cry in front of my coworkers (not true!). So I’ve definitely been avoiding slideshows of same. However, this montage over at TPM, of the flaming oil rig “Deepwater Horizon” contains no images of oil-slick pelicans, and actually just looks like a series of production stills from Waterworld, so it’s safe territory. And that’s as close as I can get to making a joke about this shit.
