Oops

Now, I’m no corporate bigwig (though my wife plays one on TV, LOL). But even a peon such as myself can bring himself to imagine that between the two of them – Russian natural gas behemoth Gazprom and the state-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) – there would be at least one person employed making sure that things like this don’t happen. What is “this,” you ask? Well, in the absence of any sort of internal review or censorship, what sort of name do you get when the aforementioned two companies form a new joint venture? Come on….think about it….GAZprom and NIGeria…etc.? That’s right, you get a multinational natural gas firm named – no kidding:

“Nigaz.”

Comedy.
