Exxon Mobil Corp. reported second-quarter earnings of $11.68 billion Thursday, the biggest quarterly profit ever by any U.S. corporationBut that's not good enough. The results "fell short of Wall Street expectations". So the price of their stock fell.

#1: Exxon Mobil rakes in record profits, but it's not good enough for Wall Street.
#2: Exxon Mobil rakes in record profits, so they're rolling in money, but they still have to squeeze $4.00 per gallon out of us. Oh, wait, that's right -- they have to pay their executives some obscene salaries and perks. Never mind.
