image for BP to Duct Tape Oil Spilling Pipe
Scientists haven't changed much over the past 40 years.

By now, all have heard of the Oil Spill into the Gulf of Mexico. After many months of arduous brainstorming on how to clean up the oil spill, a team of top government scientists have come to the conclusion that Duct Tape will, once again, be the best way to fix the mile deep leak.

"Duct tape was originally used to resist water in ammunition cases, so we figured, hey, why wouldn't it work for this oil spill?" The leading scientist of the team, whose name is not allowed to be revealed for national security reasons, said. "We haven't worked out the details exactly, but one thing's certain: this plan will work."

When asked how the oil is being planned to be picked up, he smiled and said that the information cannot be revealed, but whenever it will be, the nation's reaction will certainly be "wow!"

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