Worst Company In America Round One: BP Vs. Toyota

Did you get enough basketball this weekend? Good, because now it’s back to the more important tournament. And in today’s early bout, two international titans of terrible step into the ring to square off!

In the green and yellow trunks — or at least we think they’re green and yellow; it’s hard to tell since they’re covered in all that oil — is BP. This slick Brit is a heavy favorite to make the semifinals this year, though we all know he’d really just like his life back.

Our other pugilist is the world’s largest automaker. You can’t tell by looking at him, but just about every single one of his body parts has been recalled and replaced in the last year so he’s in sturdy fighting shape.

This poll is now closed. Congratulations to BP!
