BP Oil rig Deepwater Horizon, which sounds a lot like a Bruce Willis movie co-starring Samuel EL Jackson, explodes and catches fire April 20th, 2010.
April 20th, 2010. As of this post, there is a response website, and some sort of prayer of a cap on the well. Tons of evil sounding damage control tactics have been snagged (or rumored); opportunistic punchlines have been produced.
