Dumb and Dumber

Not that I think any other country would fair any better but a UK survey has revealed how much people are ignorant of agricultural facts. For starters 26% of youngins thought bacon came from sheep, 29% thought oats grew on trees and 17% of adults and kiddies thought eggs were an ingredient of bread. The survey was conducted for the Home Grown Cereals Authority and the National Farmers’ Union. Hmm, seems they have a little bit of PR work ahead of them. Meanwhile over in OZ a list of bizarre Oz tourism questions revealed pretty much the same type of ignorance….”Can I catch a train from Fiji to New Zealand?”, “Can you get Australian money out of ATMs overseas?” and my favorite, an Aussie asked “What was the duty free allowance in Tasmania?”
