London Smells Like %$#@

 

A stiff breeze blows across the European continent, bringing with it the smell of manure from Dutch farms. Dutch farmers, banned from spreading the stinky stuff during winter, are spreading it 'en masse', trying to rid themselves of over-supply.

The manure maneuver is going to leave a foul smell in the noses of Londoners for a couple more days until the wind direction changes. According to the Met Office, the scent is worse than usual due to stagnant winds which let the aroma build up.

London newspapers have dubbed the phenomenon 'Le Stink.' A National Farmers Union spokesman said if UK leaders go ahead with a similar idea to ban winter-time manure spreading, the UK has nothing to look forward to but more smelly days.

  huhhh  
 
Why do they feel the need to spread so much dung? They could probably make a sizable amount of money selling of the excess. Shroomheads alone could feed all there families.

  Every time I go to London  
 
I get black snots! There's so much dirt in the air that it all gets stuck in your snots, good job they're there to stop it really! I dread to think what people's lungs would look like after spending any amount of time there otherwise!

  It's true...  
 
Alot of the UK had a general stink in the air, especially in the southern half of the country.
