Interesting to see the totals going higher.

I did hear about the wan Tun soup joke.

Appears that the problem appears to have been an unreported disaster in a pig farm (that total is too high for organised dumping from all over into one spot).

Also appears that an outbreak of squitters & trots from bacterial contamination of a major water supply by carcasses is unlikely to be reported.

Appears to be a case highlighting a censorship and also a farm production problem.

And I thought the plume from the local meat rendering plant was bad...

Have a nice day: Ag
