Oil spill cleaned up with gigantic doily

GULF OF MEXICO – Incident crews from Derramar Petroleum are trying a new tactic to deal with oil spills: enormous paper doilies that soak up the viscous unrefined fuel.

“I got the idea visiting my great aunt’s house,” said Dario Ross, manager of ornamental paper spill containment projects at Derramar. “The sofa and every chair has these frilly mats behind where your head goes, and they intercept the skin oil that would ordinarily collect in the furniture fabric.”

The doilies are quite successful at absorbing the spilled oil, but researchers are still working on what to do with the saturated, toxic paper that results.

“Maybe some huge machine that wrings them out,” said Ross.
