The ShamWow Stuff – A solution for the oil gusher in the Gulf

BP has tried the top hat, sombrero, junk shot and currently are trying top hat II. I call this one the Shamwow Stuff.
After thinking about it,I came up with an idea that consists of two As Seen on TV products. We need one those vacuum bags that compress clothing up to 75% and lots of Shamwow. Take the Shamwow and keep wrapping enough towels until they are the are a little bigger than the diameter of the leaking pipe. Take the vacuum bags and compress the Shamwow wrap to 1/2 the diameter of the pipe. Instead of having a valve on the bag, there will be a ziplock. Take the compressed Shamwow, stuff it down the pipe 100 to 200 ft, then pull open the ziplock. The Shamwow expands to the diameter of the pipe. Couple hundred feet should give it enough length to catch. Wallah leak is stopped, well at least until they can seal it with cement. OK engineers, let me know how flawed my plan is.
