Let's start with some good news - it's now clear that there's an awful lot of oil in our earth. So thank a dinosaur today!

Let's start with some good news - it's now clear that there's an awful lot of oil in our earth. So thank a dinosaur today!

It's also now clear that BP's latest idea to solve the oil leak - waiting for Aquaman to talk dolphins into stuffing themselves into it - may not work.

Now, they tried a couple of different ways to fix this damn thing. There was the Top Hat idea, where they were going to put a dome over the whole thing. And that didn't work.

Then there was the Junk Shot, where they tried to fill the pipe with mud and golf balls and trash. And that didn't work. But on the plus side, we did fill the Gulf of Mexico with mud, golf balls and trash.

Then a new idea emerged called Top Kill, a process of stuffing the pipe with mud and capping it with cement. Not to be confused with Bravo's "Top Kill," a reality competition for aspiring assassins hosted by Rebecca Romijn and G. Gordon Liddy.

So how did the old Top Kill work out? BP announced on May 29 that the effort failed. If Top Kill, the coolest possible containment strategy, didn't work, what do we do?

As BP's managing director Bob Dudley explained, the new operation involves sending robots 5,000 feet under the sea so they can take a "very clean cut with the diamond saw."

We have underwater robots with diamond saws, and you tried five other ideas first?

But let's talk about BP, and the terrible, terrible people they are. How terrible? I'll let George Stephanopoulos tell you.

"Occupational health and safety records showed that in the last three years, BP ran up 760 egregious, willful safety violations," said Stephanopoulos.

Wow. It only gets more amazing when you compare it to something.

"This dwarfed violations from other oil companies - Sunoco and ConocoPhillips had eight each, Citgo had two and Exxon had one," Stephanopoulos said.

Exxon had one! And these are the people who think nothing of putting tigers in people's tanks. Exxon could get 70 times the egregious, willful safety violations and still be 90 percent safer than BP.

How does BP explain such a horrendous safety record?

"Much of that record relates to a prior period, and our absolute focus the last three or four years has been relying on safe and reliable operations," said a BP executive.

No, the record did not relate to a prior period. It related to the three or four years that you just said - it was your priority.

That's how bad you do when you're trying? Well, I guess it explains BP's old slogan: "Raping the earth and fomenting civil unrest in the Middle East since 1909."
