Hayward apologized Thursday to a U.S. House panel, stating, "The explosion and fire aboard the Deepwater Horizon and the resulting oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico never should have happened, and I am deeply sorry that they did."

Hayward and other BP officials met Obama and White House staffers Wednesday to discuss the disaster.

The Top 10 list "Things Overheard During President Obama's Meeting with Tony Hayward" appeared on Wednesday's edition of "Late Show with David Letterman."

The list read as follows --

10. "So, what's new?"

9. "Careful, you're getting oil all over the Oval Office."

8. "Before I start kicking asses, would any of you like some sparkling water?"

7. "Speaking of leaks, where is the men's room?"

6. "Thanks for giving my administration something to worry about besides two wars, a crushing debt, global warming and the worst economy in 70 years."

5. "20 billion?! Hell, I got that on me."

4. "Tony, I forgave you the second I heard that dreamy British accent."

3. "Gotta keep this short, I'm meeting with the president of Indonesia about that smoking baby."

2. "(Vice President Joe) Biden, please, enough with the vuvuzela."

1. "How can we blame this on (former President George W.) Bush and (former Vice President Dick) Cheney?"
