LA HABRA, Calif. (AP) - Scott
Triolo thought his six-inch plastic oil
wells, filled with 100 per cent real crude
oil, would outsell the pet rock. Instead,
they sank like one.
The trouble was the name he picked
for his 'company - the Iran Land and
Oil Co. - and the label on the product:
"Own Your Own Iranian Oil Well.''
SINCE MILITANT Iranians took
Americans hostage at the U.S. Em-
bassy in Tehran Nov. 4, sales of the $5
miniatures have plummeted.
"There's a definite misconception.
My product is not from Iran," said the
24-year-old businessman.
But the mood of the country is against
hm, and the market for miniature oil
wells has run dry.
MORE THAN 100,000 gift-boxed oil
wells are stacked in warehouses
throughout Orange County. Sales
representatives won't call on
customers, and major department
stores have canceled their orders.
"I'm a hostage of the free enterprise
system and it's costing me my
,livelihood," Triolo said. He said he had
invested $100,000 in the project.
"My wife won't speak to me about
it," he added.
TRIOLO BOUGHT the idea at a gift
convention in Chicago during this
spring's gas crisis, thinking it would
make his marketing career.
"They'll sell like hotcakes," he was
told.
And at first they did. His company set

up downtown offices, and Triolo took to
wearing Arab headgear to work.
BUT ALL his work was really geared
for Christmas buyers, and since the
embassy takeover Nov. 4, ,there aren't
any.
Each oil well comes with an onion
skin deed to all mineral rights, and an
instruction booklet, with a joking war-
ning: "Iran Land and Oil Company is
not responsible for overdosages.
Overexposure can lead a user to
become an overbearing dictator."
One store in Brea is selling the wells
at half price.
A San Diego businessman has offered
to buy them, re-box them with pre-
addressed labels to the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini, the religious
leader of Iran's revolutionary gover-
nment, and add an "unprintable"
message.
