The world largest experiment into the aromatherapy qualities of sweet crude concluded today.
The experiment utilised only 68000 Square Miles of the Gulf or approximately 30% of it surface area, and despite a huge logistic efforts to maintain the supply the warm waters quickly caused 75% of the oil to evaporate.
The experiment backed by the World Aromatherapist Council of Operators (WACO) will now crunch the data gathered since the Sweet Crude began to be pumped to the surface.
Sweet Crude is named for the mood it is alleged to induce on patients either by inhalation or body rub. Practitioner and spokesperson for WACO, Lavender Windrush said "This is the largest test of it's kind we were lucky that the combination of warm waters, a large supply of Sweet Crude and a positive advocate like Tony Haywood at the helm of BP all came together." She went on to say that the large population around the Gulf well know for their irascible nature was the finally piece in a project that has taken over twenty years to arrange.
Earlier experiments such as Exxon Valdez (1989) and Amoco Cadiz (1978) suffered from cold water and the good natured population of Brittany respectively.
WACO refuse to comment on the outcome so early, but a statement by a spokesman for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is unprintable and would seem to indicate Sweet Crude’s efficacy has been somewhat over stated by WACO.
