Except we can't forget that BP, British Petroleum, is the organization responsible for one of the biggest environmental disasters (and subsequent disastrous clean-up) in the history of mankind. This matters because we're now forced to ask if they are actually helping the terrorists win?

Have you been subjected to the braindead drinking war-dance ritualism that is Bros Icing Bros?
