“The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume,” – BP CEO Tony Hayward

May 24, 2010

Other basically meaningless things he might like to say:

“The human body is very big.  The amount of volume of AIDS virus we are putting into it is tiny in relation to its total volume.”

“The universe is very big.  The amount of volume of the earth is tiny in relation to the total volume, and should not be considered significant.”

“The cat is a very big cat.  The amount of poison we are putting into her food is tiny compared to the size of the cat’s paw.  This almost certainly means something important.”

“Historically, things that are small in volume compared to other things have not mattered much.”

“The volume of cookie batter is very big.  The amount of volume of baking soda we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total volume.”

“The number of words your boyfriend will say to you in the course of your relationship is very large.  The instances of the word ‘love’ in relation to the total number of words will be tiny.”
