Amerikas Sicht der Dinge zum Thema Öl im Golf von Mexiko

Wenn ich jetzt schadenfroh wäre, würde ich sagen, es hat genau den Richtigen Umweltsünder getroffen…

Amerikanische Talk-Master machen sich aber schon genug über die Geschehnisse lustig, daher hier mal kurz ein paar Schnippsel (english only):

They sent specialists down there to start a controlled fire on the ocean to burn the oil off. That’s how you know when things are bad, when the ocean on fire is an improvement.

Jay Leno

Prison inmates in Louisiana are now pitching in to clean up the Gulf oil spill. At this point, the solutions have been: dump chemicals into the ocean, shoot a bunch of garbage underwater, and release prisoners. If none of that works, they’re going to have al-Qaida come take a look at it.

Jimmy Fallon

One in 8 people are saying that they will not buy gas from BP any more. That is, unless they’re cheaper than the gas station across the street.

Jay Leno

I’ve never been more glad that I’m not a Gulf shrimp than I am today.

Jimmy Kimmel

How about that oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico – or as they renamed it, the "Dead Sea".

David Letterman

Hey, here’s some good news. The price of oil has dropped by $12 a barrel. I mean, why buy it when you can just scoop it out of the water, huh?

Jay Leno

BP has asked Pamela Anderson if she would donate a bra to help cap the oil leaks.

Janice Hough

Since the four-story dome that BP thought would stop the Gulf oil leak has failed, they think clogging the pipe with useless scrap material may work. They’ll use materials that are not biodegradable, like shredded tires and your in-laws‘ Christmas fruit cakes.

Jerry Perisho

BP is now using a special containment dome called a "top hat" that shoots methanol into the oil leak. A top hat that shoots methanol? That doesn’t sound like an emergency device – that sounds like something Lady Gaga would wear to the VMAs.

Jimmy Fallon

According to the top people in the petroleum industry, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will not affect gas prices. They were going up anyway.

Jay Leno

Transocean has cited a law from 1851 to limit the amount of their liability in the Gulf oil spill. Leave it to the oil companies to protect themselves even then. They lobbied for protection eight years before the first U. S. oil well was even drilled.

Jim Barach

That idea about using a concrete dome to cover up the oil leak in the Gulf did not work. Experts are calling this the worst use of a concrete dome since they built that stadium for the Detroit Lions.

Jay Leno

This oil spill in the Gulf is affecting everybody. In fact, when I went to lunch this weekend and ordered the sea bass, they asked if I wanted it regular or unleaded.

David Letterman

Congress told BP that they can’t "label this catastrophic failure an unpredictable and unforeseeable occurrence." Congress used that excuse already for not catching the financial meltdown in time.

Jay Leno

They tried a big dome to stop the leak and that didn’t work, and then they tried a little dome and that didn’t work, and then they tried to stuff the hole with garbage. Now they’re talking about dumping lettuce and croutons into the Gulf and declaring it a giant salad.

Jay Leno

Florida Governor Charlie Crist says he wants BP to pay $35 Million for a tourism ad campaign. The new campaign says "Come to Florida. Sunbathers don’t even need to apply oil, it’s already on the beach!"

Jim Barach

BP still has not managed to stop the oil leak in the Gulf. The plan now is to plug the leak this week with a "top hat." But first they have to find an enormous game of monopoly that has the piece.

Jimmy Kimmel

BP is now dispersing dispersants to counter the oil spill in the Gulf. I think we can trust BP with toxic chemicals, don’t you?

David Letterman

They’re also trying to plug the oil leak with shredded tires and old golf balls. It’s like the front lawn at Tiger Woods‘ house.

David Letterman

They’re considering a plan to fire golf balls and rubber tires into the leak to clog it. Toyota and Tiger Woods may finally have a chance to redeem themselves after all.

Jimmy Kimmel

The BP executives responsible for the big oil spill in the Gulf testified before Congress. They were criticized by the same guys that approved drilling in the Gulf.

David Letterman

BP, Transocean, and Halliburton are all blaming each other for the Gulf oil spill. And you know what? They’re all right.

Jay Leno

BP engineers are working on a plan to shoot different types of garbage into the Gulf oil leak to clog it up. People on the Gulf Coast are like "Do whatever you have to do to end this," while fish on the Gulf Coast are like "You’re kidding me."

Jimmy Fallon

Although it seems like nothing is getting accomplished in the Gulf, and the situation is getting worse every day, the government has been involved in the clean-up effort since the beginning. They said that, as proof of their involvement, nothing has really been accomplished and the situation is getting worse every day.

Jay Leno

The Republican National Committee is already questioning Elena Kagan’s "commitment to the Constitution"? One question, if these folks are so committed to the Constitution, where were they when George W. Bush was shredding it?
