Did Cattle Flatulence Cause the Explosion and Fire in San Bruno?

WASHINGTON, DC - FDA Secretary Thomas J. Vilsack has assigned a task-force to investigate the recent natural-gas explosion and fire that killed four and injured scores in San Bruno, California.

When asked why the FDA was investigating, Vilsack responded "We have extensive research and development capability in methane-gas explosions caused by cattle flatulence. This technology, along with our expertise in ethanol can be brought to bear on this terrible tragedy."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs later said that the FDA would now be handling all Homeland Security issues as well, while Homeland Security concentrated on the important issue: Getting Democrats elected in the midterm elections.
