Additional Information: 

ExxonMobil was founded in 1870 by John D. Rockefeller to capitalize on the newly founded oil business, which started when oil was discovered in the United States in 1859. The company was founded as Standard Oil Company in Ohio. Originally the company was a regional provider of kerosene, before making the transition into other ventures such as petroleum. The company rebranded many times, finally becoming Exxon in 1972.

The phrasing on this button is used to insult someone that has oily hair. Depending on the tone, it may also be used as a lighthearted joke. Since Exxon is associated with the oil business, this is a clever jab to comment on someone’s oily hair without outright expressing it.
