BP Oil: when everyone knows your name, but nobody likes you.
BP Oil Spill Cartoons A lot of very busy, important sites have linked to me in the past for some reason, but I was amused when I was linked on Google’s finance page for BP Oil for my recent cartoon on BP. I loved the high volume traffic from this, but there’s a reason editorial ...
