Cha'mon scarecrow.......

This week on the Sunday Hangover, I pondered the new frankly bonkers lengths farmers were going to protect their produce. We heard about a farmer in Rwanda who has hired a DJ to play music to increase the number of pregnancies in his herd of pigs - was there any Barry White on the playlist to get them in the mood? And in Taiwan, a farmer has made scarecrows dressed up as Michael Jackson to scare the birds away - surely Michael's face in the later years would be enough to scare the bravest of birds away?

We also heard about the cheerleaders who complained their costumes were too skimpy and looked tacky - what next? Strippers complaining about the nudity in the job? And finally we heard about the clown who has been elected to parliament in Brazil. Nothing new there though - we've been doing it for years!

We're off next week so we'll see you on October 24th!
