GULF OF MEXICO (The Borowitz Report) - In what the embattled oil company is hailing as a major step forward towards plugging the oil leak in the Gulf, BP announced today that it was consulting with Toyota about "how to make things stop."

"These Toyota guys are pretty smart guys," said BP CEO Tony Hayward. "As soon as they figure out how to make this thing stop, I'll be able to get my life back."

The first meeting between engineers from Toyota and BP was postponed after the Toyota contingent sped past the meeting site in a Corolla and disappeared from view. More here.
