Everybody loves a conspiracy theory


No more vodka for you Aleksei

Russian MP Aleksei Mitrofanov, obviously a few hens short of a flock, shares his thoughts on bird flu, Americans, and chickens:
"There is no such thing as bird flu, just as there is no AIDS, tulip or mad cow disease," Mitrofanov was quoted as saying by the Rosbalt news agency.

"It is a provocation by Americans. They want to eliminate all chickens in Europe so that we have to import 'Bush's legs'," he said. "Bush's legs" is a Russian saying for deep frozen chicken thighs massively imported from the U.S. under President George Bush Sr.

For a slightly more coherent exposition of this bird-brained theory read "'Very strange bird flu' or is bird flu - American bio-weapon?" by Vladimir Ivanov.
