[/rant] I just listened to 5fm, and after a while I was so irritated that I switched the radio off and cursed loudly. There was a bit of news about some woman who had her chihuahua dog stolen, then this dumb, uneducated woman phoned in and said, oh no it's a new trend, they steal dogs and sell it to laboratories for experiments. Oooh I forgot the most important part, if it's a 'fashion dog' like a chihuahua or a cocker spaniel, you get more money.
Now please tell me, why does rumours like this spread like wildfire?! I hate goddamn scaremongers and n00bs who believe everything.
