One of the last year' s beauties!

Following a recent spate of crop circles in Wiltshire, it has all turned out to be one massive hoax! It has long been thought that it is the work of extra terrestrials, but the real culprits have now been identified.

The circles have become more elaborate have now begun to appear in fields of oil seed rape which produces a lovely yellow flower in May and June. One farmer in Wiltshire has told In Seine News:

"I was woken up at about two o'clock this morning by some strange whirring noises and I just thought that it was a bad dream. However, when I got up this morning, I found all these elaborate shapes cut into my crop. I am bloody livid at the damage they've done -- were £904 has been trampled. It's just wanton vandalism. Why just last year my neighbour who farms barley had his fields flattened with thousands of pounds of crops ruined. At first I thought it was him, but now I know exactly how he feels because now they've struck on me.""

"The markings in his field with two interconnecting owners, whereas mine looks like a 'G'. Those computer folks must think I'm stupid! I've got their cards marked; it's only a gimmick and publicity stunt by non-other than Google. I gave them a ring and asked them what the bloody hell are they playing at?"

"The man from Google, Dougal McPoodle, admitted that some of his employees were in the area last night doing some research on the 'Google Earth project' - in fact it will be used in satellite photographs to spell out the word 'Google' one day on our website. Naturally you will be compensated and so will your neighbour. However, it is not company policy to apologise - there is far too much of that going on - politicians and radio presenters are always apologising, but never part with any cash! we're just going to put our money where our mouth is, it speaks louder than words" he said.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
