BP says will deploy “top hat” to contain oil spill

It just might work

(A&P Press, reported by Del Unser)
BP the British energy giant, said it would deploy a small containment dome, known as a “top hat,” in a new attempt to trap the oil at the site of the leak a mile beneath the Gulf of Mexico.
“The top hat deployment should happen in the next couple of days,” BP spokesman Brent Strom said. “We don’t have a definitive date as of yet.”
Strom went on to say that if the “top hat” deployment is unsuccessful in stopping the oil spill perhaps a containment dome in the shape of a different hat might work, “Perhaps something less formal, maybe a jaunty old timey cap or some sort of giant cowboy hat will stop the leak.”. Other suggestions from international think tanks include; contacting Aquaman, nicely asking the oil to stop flowing, and plugging the leak with children’s prayers.

    Maybe the plan is giant Monopoly pieces and they’re working on a huge thimble, scottie dog and race car if the top hat fails.

  1. A stingy-brimmed Homburg ought to do the trick. If not, add it to the new sex slang thread.

    “The Stingy Brimmed Homburg” is illegal in 9 countries including Denmark where the “move’ was invented.
    I think they just sent a giant metallic scottie dog as the next attempt to plug the hole

    Instead, why not just add “plug the hole” to the sex slang thread and call it a day.
