A special committee
investigating the chain of events leading to BP's disastrous oil spill
in the Gulf of Mexico have come up with what is believed to be the main
cause for the leak.
power tools that were used to build the failing oil rig whose explosion
started the leak were purchased from the back of a suspicious, white van
parked in front of a Waffle House. After dining, crew members in charge
of buying supplies congratulated themselves over the acquisition of
these tools, despite obvious abnormalities (see photo above).
Said crew member
Wilton Vandermock, "Nothin' looked wrong with the darned machines. We's
had patted ourselves on the back after finding us some tools mighty
quick. There was more time for chowing down with our pals at Waffle
House instead of looking for other tools. And these tools were pretty
darned cheap too."
