Clean Energy Works, a coalition of groups backing (duh) clean-energy policies, sent out a press release with a suggested menu that included “Gulf Disaster Finger-Pointing Sandwiches” and “Deepwater Turtle Soup — Fresh Turtle in a thick Oil Bisque.”

Entrees included the “‘BPo-Boy’: Your choice Oysters, Shrimp or Catfish Smothered with Crude Oil” and the “Transocean Special — Blackened Tuna accompanied by Blackened Oysters, Blackened Mussels and Blackened Vegetables on the side.”
