colonizer's gas

So you're Russia. And you decide you want to stretch your influence in the world petroleum market through your national gas company - Gazprom.

Nigeria, you decide, is IT.

Let's do some co-branding, you think. It's really just simple math:

Nigeria + Gazprom = Nigaz

Right? Wrong.

Thanks to Seph for the keen eye.
