Unveiling a golden skeleton named Gilda, the Yes Men strike again delivering a speech at an international banking conference as "VP of Acceptable Risk, Erastus Hamm for Dow Chemical" (you may remember Dow from such disasters as the Bhopal spill...video here). They explain: "Had we had Acceptable Risk� back in 1972, we would have known that Dursban's [a WWII nerve gas derived pesticide banned in the US] global potential, combined with low chances of major risk 'blossoming,' would mean that if Dursban was going to be a skeleton in the closet, it would be a golden one--which it is." The speech was met with many congratulations from attending bankers. (Dowethics)
