So for context here is the skit John Oliver did on the coal industry
https://youtu.be/aw6RsUhw1Q8?t=806

When Oliver's producers asked Murray Energy for a comment they were sent a cease and desist letter before they even aired the skit. Apparently they sue anyone that mentions his name. Well they did the skit anyway (It's hilarious, please watch) and it led to the suit being filed almost immediately.

I knew Bob Murray was pretty insane but I didn't know the parts about him getting life advice from squirrels and so on. Just wow....

I saw an interview with him and several other coal CEOs way back and thought "wow that guy seems kind of crazy." After seeing that skit and doing some more research on him I see he's way beyond what I thought, he's not even on this planet anymore.

Murray should be sued for impersonating Digital Homocide.

In all seriousness though, I'm not sure whether I'm more excoted to see how this turns out or how desperate people will get to try and defend it.

He hit the nail on the head when he called him a geriatric Dr. Evil.

Still works for me but you never know with youtube these days. If anyone needs another link there it is, just skip to about 13 minutes in.

Got it. Coal still bad, John Oliver still not funny (too bad he can't be sued for that). Thanks for posting, hadn't heard this story yet.

Huh. Oh well. Sorry to anyone in advance about the corner video in the link I provided... The guy who uploaded it is likely trying to avoid the youtube bot patrol.

I'm in Canada, so that may be why I don't see the link. Any other Canadians please pipe up if you have the same situation or etc.

Normally I would call you out and poke fun at your macho posturing... but instead I'll point out that you might wanna be careful. You might get sued by Bob Murray.

Instead, you should probably say something more like.

"It would be a terrible day if one of Bob Murray's mines had a cataclysmic collapse with only Bob Murray in it."

But then that probably wouldn't be macho enough for you.

This lawsuit will go over as well as when Bill O'Reilly convinced Fox News to sue Al Franken.
