How do no one every tell of this NewsBiscuit before? It’s fantastic, kind of a UK version of The Onion, but dryer and more polite. Or something.
Anyways, here’s a recent one, my introduction to this fantastic site: Homeopathic leak threatens catastrophe.
An accidental release of highly dilute homeopathic waste from a research institute in Swindon has led to calls for the centre to be shut down. Plant operators have admitted responsibility for massive safety blunders after a spilled drop of an enormously dilute test product was cleaned by a caretaker, and in complete disregard of all safety procedures, allowed to enter the water system after he emptied his mop bucket down the drain.
Local reaction has been mixed – many of course are living in fear – the latest advice has been for locals not to wash their vegetables before cooking. Some demand the plant be closed down. But others have taken a more pragmatic view, and accept that sometimes great advances in medical pseudoscience can come at a heavy price.
It’s really very funny. You should read the whole thing.
