GM potato trials given go-ahead

In today's news, we hear that the GM potato trials are given the go-ahead.

DEFRA, the UK Department of the Environment, Food, Ribena and Apples, is expected to release a statement later today explaining that the matter is being brought to trial to prosecute manufacturers of potato crisps for their part in the plague of obesity that currently besets us.

A spokesman for General Motors said:
"This isn't anything to do with us."

The Soil Association's policy director, Lord Peter Melchett, said:
"Now then, Blackadder, nobody thinks that potatoes will seriously be used by British consumers or bought by them. Sir Walter Raleigh might as well take them back to the Americas"
