Gromit reading The Mail?????? (other comics are available)Just when you think the Great British Public couldn't get any more bloody stupid there's always a bunch of them ready to come along and prove how wrong you are. Just how dumb do they have to be not to realise that by chasing tankers (there's got to be some rhyming slang in there somewhere) and frantically topping up one gallon at a time they're actually perpetuating the self-inflicted problem?
EDIT: Just found this article in the Mail (other gossip-ridden rags are available) that makes it clearer exactly how it started. Allegedly.
