Recent estimates put the spill in the Gulf of Mexico as growing by anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 barrels of oil per day – making the slick four times as large as the Exxon Valdez incident. After multiple failed attempts to stem the flow, the public is beginning to get the idea that BP has no idea how to contain this disaster. With widespread ecological destruction already in full swing and growing by the second, it's hard not to wonder just how bad this is going to get before a workable solution comes to light. In the mean time, the residents of the gulf coast continue to watch as one slip up from a global corporation threatens to end their current livelihoods.
As dark as the situation is, we could all use a little laughter, and the Upright Citizens Brigade have taken it upon itself to give the petroleum giant the ribbing it deserves with a new video. The quick flick asks the question: How would BP handle a conference room coffee spill? Hilarity ensues. Hit the jump to see for yourself, but be aware that there is some explicit language.
