Experts Propose Plugging Oil Leak With BP Executives
Fake news by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTONAt a conference of oil leak experts in Washington today, attendees proposed plugging the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico with executives of BP, the company responsible for the catastrophic spill.
Weve tried containment domes, rubber tires and even golf balls, said William Cathermeyer of the National Oil Leakage Institute, a leading consultancy in the field of oil leaks. Now its time to shove some BP executives down there and hope for the best.
Submerging the oil company executives thousands of feet below the oceans surface could be a win-win situation, Cathermeyer said. Best-case scenario, they plug the leak, he said. And at the very least, theyll shut the fuck up.
