Dearest Ms A

Hi there; I would like to introduce myself and my big drilling rig. I'm big robust and tend to blow out in the deep. I'm well traveled and known around the globe especially in the Gulf of Mexico. I first spied you at one of my filling stations and was impressed with your handling my fuel pumps.

Please consider this as a preferential offer of my stocks and hope we can come to an equitable merger of interests. I can offer you a fine swivel chair and mahogany desk if you pledge your troth to me, and an interesting bonus scheme is also part of the prenuptial arrangements.

I can see us walking down the aisle of Big Oil Cathedral and being married on the rig of all our desires and of course all the members of congress will sing in the choir on our wedding day.

All my Love BP.

Well I really don't know what to say. Will our love meet with the approval of the evangelists, will I be able to show my face on Kos ever again?

Please answer in the poll

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
