Secret Weapon Saves the Gulf!

Funny story written by b kenneth mcgee

Tuesday, 10 August 2010

In a joint statement issued today, Admiral Thad Allen and a representative of BP Oil announced that the Gulf Oil spill was not only over but the environmental impact from it had been totally eliminated!

A stunned press corps shouted questions at the two men. "How? Why? When?" the journalists shouted. "One at a time," said Admiral Allen. "I know this comes as a surprise to you, but it is a solution that we knew about all along."

"What is it," several shouted at once. "Why did you wait eighty days? Did Obama know this from the start? Why now?"

Allen took a deep breath and spoke slowly and deliberately. "This is a matter of national security and one that has international implications. It is not to be taken lightly and it is only under extreme pressure that I speak of it at all."

"WHAT IS IT?" The entire press corps shouted at once and surged toward the stage.

"PLEASE," shouted Allen in return. "But you must not tell anybody!"

"Huh," the journalists said in unison.

Allen, then looked the agitated reporters directly in the eye, stood with shoulders back, took a deep breath, and said, "Fairy Dust."

The assembled gasped. Eyes widened. There was a moment of silence. Then a lone reporter said in a voice close to tears, "But Admiral, why now? We have two wars going on, our men and women are being killed, coming home crippled and mentally scarred, and thousands of civilians have died. Couldn't this country have used the Fairy
Dust before this?"

"Good question," said Allen. "According to the opinion polls, there isn't the public interest in those matters and you just don't go around using Fairy Dust on a whim!" Allen and the man from BP abruptly left the stage.

"And the angels weep," the reporter was heard to say.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
