The scene in Spain today

Spain - A huge orange cloud of toxic crap has erupted from a chemical plant at Igualada in Spain's notoriously brain-dead region of Catatonia.

Firefighters described the fumes as a heady cocktail of nitric acid, ferric chloride and the orange food colorant tartrazine - all key ingredients in local indigenous delicacies called huevos naranjas (orange balls).

The sweetmeats contain Trisodium 1-(4-sulfonatophenyl)-4-(4-sulfonatophenylazo)-5-pyrazolone-3-carboxylate), an artificial dye used extensively in the fake tanning industry as well as the manufacture of prison-style boiler suit.

This morning billions of cubic metres of orange fumes were seen billowing from the industrial plant towards a regional wind farm where 10,000 turbines were ready and waiting to do their job of spreading pollution over the surrounding countryside.

First responders said that an emergency had been declared by the Mayor's orifice after scores of municipal workers who had accidentally breathed the fumes had turned tangerine.

Expect an update on this farce-breaking story as we make it up.
