Fin Stuff

The good people of Cornwall can breathe easy again as the Great White Shark story comes full circle and is, with crushing predictability, exposed as a hoax. This was one of those stories that just had to happen, chiming so perfectly with the hunger for 'Global warming brings giant foreign beasties our way' stories (see Daily Mail passim). This blog, with its frequent alarmist tales of avian gigantism, has, I like to think, done its bit towards this entertaining phenomenon.

  2. It would certainly have been poetic justice if everyone had stayed away and Cornwall's fish restaurants had had to close because of ... a fish!
