    Default Foot and mouth scare

    Seems that some idiot has said that they have released foot and mouth on Waiheke Island (off the coast of Aukland), it has already cost millions even though MAF is sure that it is a hoax.

    Default Foot and mouth scare

    What annoyed me is that an obvious hoax (and probable student prank) is whipped up into hysteria by the media. Do they have nothing else to talk about? Sometimes we are too small a country.

    I generally get Foot-in-Mouth ;-)
