    Creative agency Jess3 has developed a Firefox plugin that aims to black out all mentions of BP (British Petroleum) across the web. The Black Oil Firefox plugin replaces all mentions (case insensitive) of BP and accompanying terms like BP oil, BP gas, BP worldwide, and so on, with blacked out letters and dripping oil drops. Images that contain meta data matching the terms are also blacked out. You can see what the plugin looks like when doing a Google search for 'BP':

    In a future version of the plugin, Jess3 plans to add oil drip effects to BP photographs and to turn official BP websites black and white.

    "The satirical BP Twitter account is running wild with this news, publishing mock tweets like "We're paying Google a lot of money to make sure you only have access to the best possible info on the oil spill: our info," and, "By the way, we made it so if you google image search "oil spill" or "bp" you'll see some great celeb sideboob pics. #bpcares."" .........WTF is this company doing?
