BP Unsuccessful In Plugging Oil Spill

BP used a "top kill" solution of mud and golf balls, among other things, in an attempt to plug a massive oil spill in Louisiana, emanating from 5,000 feet beneath the sea.

However, BP put more golf balls in the water than U.S. President Obama on vacation, in trying to stop the terrible spill, but to no success thus far, as the black gold continues to waste in the Gulf of Mexico.

For years, people have drilled for oil in Louisiana, but this is the first time they attempted to do so this far beneath the sea and it has proven disastrous.
