The Oil Spill

There is a huge oil problem in the Gulf Of Mexico.

Milions and millions of gallons of oil are shooting out of some well and into the ocean. (It might not be an actual well...more like a hole in the bottom of the ocean. Or something.)


Anyhow, all the top brains (Stephen Hawking was not present) couldn't come up with a plan so some 6 year old boy came up with the brilliant plan to make some 100 ton 'box' and place it over the leak.

Of course they tried it, and it failed.

So now they're back to square one.

And they've come up with this new genius plan.

This new plan sounds like it was conceived by Dennis Mitchell.

I'm not making this is what they might try:

"The next tactic with be a junk shot. They'll take a bunch of debris, shredded up tires, golf balls and things like that and under very high pressure shoot it into the preventer itself and see if they can clog it up and stop the leak."


Yeah, that should work.

(If only Stephen Hawking could fly to the future and get the needed futuristic shredded tires and futuristic golf balls...)

I heard they were designing a giant bathtub plug next.
