A complex 100ft crop circle has turned up in a field of oil seed rape in Wiltshire, England.

"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.

I'm responsible for this one...there is no other explanation for it's lack of symmetry and poor design.

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