They have taken BP's earlier post & made a commercial of it.

There is something else entertaining on there - check out last sentence in the "Origins" paragraph. Red Dog is malt liquor?

Oh yeah, along with my royalties from the Super Siphon, it helps pay for the upkeep of my villa on St. Barts.

Obviously the twit that faked the add didn't see the "It's all about the beer campaign". Funkin' moron.

Make it a real ad campaign and put the poor, wet, bastard to work. Like it or not, he probably had a choice of personal possesions to save or beer to loot (or water to recycle) but choose the skunk beer...that's worth 15 minues of paid fame.

Bill, let us not forget the high pay that comes from being a beer writer, too!

Denny: From you comment, you must have cut a better deal with Chris than Bill and I did.

All: When the looting first started, there were many shots of people taking beer. I choose to believe that they were taking beer because all the bottled water was gone. Beer, bread, food, etc - I have no problem with that. The grocer will declare his inventory a loss anyway. But, TVs, jewlery, guns - they should have been shot on the spot. And, rumors are that as people return, they are finding looters that were, indeed, shot. Usually, in the knees, and left to die in pain.
Now that the news is no longer news, the problems have not abated. Rather, the press has moved its attention else where.
Telephones still do not work
Electricity is still not on
The odor is absolutely unbeliveable, and the list goes on.
IMHO, Rita should rain on NO. Maybe it will clean the place out.
