German Dioxin scandal hits Australia

Funny story written by Mikethelad

Monday, 10 January 2011

Eggheads in Germany at the Max Headroom Institute have identified that there might be implications of the Dioxin in eggs scandal far beyond the boundaries of Germany.

A team of scientists has been sent to Australia in the latest bid to track down contaminated food and drink, following a request for help from the Australian Health Minister, Shiela (no relation to Rolf) Harris.

Speaking on TV station Murdochvision's programme "Live at Five", Ms Harris said the Germans needed to check out Fosters XXXX lager as a first step. The English "Barmy-Army" cricket supporting team had been drinking copious quantities of the Australian staple drink and had been deluded into thinking the English had won the Ashes. "The first sign of Dioxin poisoning is a rash akin to sunburn (seen on the English) and delusions so this must be a priority" she said.

German experts were also tracing other possible contaminations around the world and will be visiting French President, Nicolas (its bigger than you would imagine!) Sarkozy's office this afternoon.

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