The same technology that keeps a kid -- or a drunk -- from ruining a mattress might be able to clean up this big mess in the Gulf of Mexico. It's called the Ocean Mop, and it's the brainchild of a mattress pad salesman named Skip Leiblein from Boca Raton. Incredibly, BP hasn't cut him a check for a few hundred million dollars worth of mattress pads yet.

A slightly more plausible idea comes from Enviro Voraxial in Fort Lauderdale. You can see it in action after the jump.
