The Exxon Oil Spill in Arkansas…

Or…
Why shouldn’t I just go ahead and blow the rest of my Mom’s Life Insurance money on hookers? (H/T to Lee Camp for the video.)

Via “Mother Jones”.

An ExxonMobil pipeline broke on Friday evening, dumping thousands of gallons of tar sands oil in Mayflower, Arkansas. The Pegasus pipeline starts in Illinois and carries 95,000-barrels of oil per day from Alberta’s tar sands to refineries in Texas.

At least 22 homes had to be evacuated after the spill, and local residents have posted some alarming photos and video of the mess in their streets and backyards. The group HAWK Center (Helping Arkansas Wild Kritters) is also posting photos of oiled birds that have been rescued and brought in.

We didn’t kill the dinosaurs but it’s sure as shit looking like they’re going to be the death of us.
