Dear Peasants: Fuck Off

BP chair: Sorry for ‘small people’ remark on Gulf – Yahoo! News.

VENICE, La. – BP’s chairman has apologized for saying the company cares about the “small people” of the Gulf Coast hit by the oil disaster — a comment met with anger by those who say they are tired of the company’s executives making insensitive remarks.

On Wednesday, Carl-Henric Svanberg told reporters in Washington: “I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies or don‘t care, but that is not the case with BP. We care about the small people.” He later said he was sorry for speaking “clumsily.”

One of the distinctions Americans are unwilling to make is that of class. Equality knows no class boundaries. Well, not openly, anyway. Everyone knows that poor people don’t beat felony charges, while the rich can. That rich ugly people still get to fuck whomever they like and don’t have to deal with depression or stress. Rich folks have more elegant drug addictions and can bounce back and forth from recovery centers with glee.

So, peasants, just go back about your business of worrying about food on the table, watching reality television (but not making reality television), having sex with other poor, ugly people and doing your low-class drugs like meth.

However, he probably meant “little guy” as in “looking out for the little guy.” Which would have not been a faux pas, and would have endeared him to said peasants. Either way, I think theres a whole bunch of people out there that just need to man up.
