I am continually amazed at the ingenuity of the the Southern American dirt farmer. it seems one good old boy asked another good old boy what he would do with all that oil in the Gulf. The second good old boy said "I know how to clean it up- fast!". Unbelievably simple. I doubt if BP thought of this, and I would bet next month's commissions the government didn't think of it.

This is classic country shade tree engineering at it's best.
