Halliburton Site: CGM, Spoof or Real Deal?

If ever there was a company ripe for a CGM spoof, it's gotta be Halliburton. This site looks legit, until you look more closely

halliburton.jpgIf ever there was a company ripe for a CGM spoof, it’s gotta be Halliburton.

This site looks legit, until you look more closely. It contains gems like The Halliburton SurvivaBall™ “a one-size-fits-all solution to global warming,” also advertised as “a gated community for one.”

Other links appear to actually be legit. Yet none of this is part of the official corporate site, haliburton.com. A whois lookup seems to confirm there’s really no association with Dick Cheney’s former corporation.

It sure would be interesting to know how — and if — the real Halliburton responds. And if they’re even listening.
