ExxonMobil is not very happy with Greenpeace right now. Greenpeace doctored an Esso (its name in France - and in Canada for that matter) logo to read E$$o, and ExxonMobil now claims it looks like the SS insignia. Sheesh, Godwin's Law could have been used to predict this development.

From the article, ExxonMobil claims that the 'resemblance' (my scare quotes) to the Nazi army unit will "drive consumers away from its brand."

a - Free clue: driving consumers away from your brand might be the goal.
b - you mean dumping millions of gallons of oily gunk in Prince William Sound didn't do its part?

Anyways, you be the judge.

Bonus points if you can tell me what Greenpeace had to do with 'WKRP in Cincinnati'.
