HEADLINE – Japan’s reactor operator apologizes for radiation release

TOKYO – A Japanese power company executive apologized on Saturday for spreading radiation into the air and sea due to preventable mechanical malfunctions caused by negligent operational protocols and substandard maintenance of nuclear reactors damaged by recent earthquakes and a tsunami.

“I totally apologize for spreading radiation into the air and sea due to preventable mechanical malfunctions caused by negligent operational protocols and substandard maintenance of nuclear reactors damaged by recent earthquakes and a tsunami,” Sakae Muto, a TEPCO vice president, told a news conference.

“I totally goofed. It was totally my fault, and for that I am totally sorry. My bad,” Muto added, pointing out that he should get some credit for “totally owning” the problem and not trying to point the finger of blame at Japanese nuclear safety regulators who either repealed or failed to enforce safety regulations.

“This guy is totally ruining it for all of us,” said Gene McTutle, a high level executive with Goldman Sachs. “Never apologize for anything. Never admit you made a mistake. Never ever.  Insist that you are too big to fail and then convince the government to fix your private mistakes by bailing you out by giving you lots and lots of public money that you can give to yourself as bonuses and that you will never pay back. That’s how this works,” McTutle concluded.

  1. I’d prefer if someone from Japan would apologise for using seaweed as a food product. That’s far worse than radioactive spinach and mutant toad fish. Oh, and they can say ‘sorry’ for the Datsun 120Y while they’re at it.

  2. A fair assessment, Therbs. Judging from the number of them still on the roads, the 120Y also has a half life and anyone who has been stuck behind one can vouch for its negligent operational protocols.

  3. Yes but when all this leaking radiation produces Goji and he rises from the sea and lays waste your decadent American lifestyle there will be no apologies.
