It's "Oil Made From Dead Bodies" Saturday, too!

After noting that current energy policies will likely lead to "huge global calamities" and disrupt oil supplies, Wolff told the audience "that in the worst case scenario, the oil industry could "keep fuel flowing" by transforming the billions of people who die into oil," said a Yes Men press release.

"Corporate Tricksters" the Yes Men infiltrate the Gas and Oil Exposition in Alberta to pose as representatives from Exxon to pitch "Vivoleum," a fuel source made from the bodies of people killed by global warming. Wired has the whole story here.

The presentation ended when the "representatives" had attendees light candles in remembrance of a dead Exxon worker. As ridiculous tribute video played out on-screen, a shot of the worker talking about how he wishes his body could be turned into oil when he died led attendees to revolt.
