New information has come to light regarding the Devon farmer who lost his hat. This morning's story about a farmer carving the word 'Googe' into his wheat field prompted a response from Google, who created a commemorative logo page, complete with a picture of the event. However, it is now apparent that Google predicted the loss of the sun hat even before it happened.

Ten days ago, Google displayed a logo showing the farmer's hat being blasted into the sky by a rush of wind. Now questions are being asked as to whether Google are in fact responsible for the whole sun hat fiasco which resulted in agricultural madness.

As the day progressed, the mystery deepened. On Twitter, Google gave hints to their connection to the story by publishing a set of map co-ordinates. These point almost directly to the farmer's mother's house in Woking.

Additionally, the Google logos around the globe have been gradually changing to the farmer's hat and crop damage picture, and the sale of sun hats has inexplicably gone through the roof.

Some people on the Internet are even linking the story to UFOs, claiming that in some ways the pictures of the farmer's sun hat could somehow represent flying saucers.

Whatever the explanation, many are predicting that the saga of the farmer, his missing sun hat and his strange crop circle writing will continue on Google in the weeks ahead.

We can only wait and see, and pray that Devon's agricultural economy will not be damaged further.

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