We think we have it bad
Come to the crystal clear waters of the Yellow Sea and frolic in our newly formed oil bath. Our ancient chinese secret formula will exfoliate your skin down to the bone. Great for removing those long time pesky inperfections in your complexion. Also included is a hair oil treatment you'll never forget.
This is of course a worker being rescued from the sea when an oil pipline broke spilling 400,000 gallons into the Yellow Sea. From the description this type of oil is far more difficult to clean up than the oil we have on our shores. I believe it to be bunker oil which is about as thick as peanut butter and it doesn't look like the chinese were prepared for the clean up by the following statement:
"We don't have proper oil cleanup materials, so our workers are wearing rubber gloves and using chopsticks," an official with the Jinshitan Golden Beach Administration Committee told the Beijing Youth Daily newspaper in apparent exasperation.
Oh and do they bother to close their beaches and fishing? Of coure not, they just wait until the population figures it out that it's not smart to go swimming or fishing. When your sea bass dinner starts smelling like 40 weight it's time to switch to chicken.
Now I see why the republicans like the chinese so much... not many rules.
