"The unseasonably warm spring weather has not only brought forward many summer flowers - it has sparked the usual round of crop circles."

Somebody's been drinking too much JD. Too wobbly and not symmetrical enough.

It's sad that people would think that crop circles are from aliens. They wouldn't waste their time on stupid stunts like this.
