Stoned wallabies make crop circles

I know when I get high, I often go around in perfect circles in the grass with a few of my buddies making unique geometric designs. wtf?

I take it as, the wallabies are eating the poppies, getting high and hopping in circles, knocking down the crops in the process. I don’t think they meant it as perfect geometric patterns.
They make it really hard to read though. Really hard. I almost want to say stupid. The comments are hilarious though.

Those must be some pretty intense poppy seeds for patterns like these to be created

Damn wallabies! I bet they’ve been stomping all over the garden too!

Why BBC? Why? That seems like something that The Onion would put out.

Notice they don’t show any photos of wallaby created crop circles. I can only imagine this is because wallaby damage looks nothing like the intricate and detailed circles we are used to seeing. Bunk.

Ha. I absolutely adore this!
The comments are ridiculously hilarious, and the article is one of the worst I’ve read in a very long time! Thank you BBC.
Oh, and thank YOU for sharing! :D

@kevbo : I know, right? They only have a picture of a mischievous wallaby, as if that were sufficient enough evidence. I think they’re running out of material and had to… ahem… embellish one of their own.

I wish we had wallaby’s here. They are cute.

Have you ever seen (like, in a movie) someone walking out of an opium den? They kind of meander in a circle—the direction they’re looking—until their head falls the other way and then they go that way. Like a zombie. They can only concentrate on one, maybe two things at a time. Then they fall down. Seems like that might be the effect of opium across the board. “Opium: It’s Not Just For Wallabies Any More.”

And here I thought crop circles were from cows eating the “medicinal” marijuana and then making circles in the wheat fields. Its amazing what marsupials can do compared to placental mammals.

Dude… awesome…

the pure fact that someone tried this gives me hope for humanity…

Of course! Wallabies are aliens!

Ha. That’s gold. Lara Giddings is a tool.

One of my relatives, who was once married to a Zambian, says that a drunk elephant is a most amazing sight. She did not elaborate. It seems that in many homes, women brew beer. While it is fermenting in a hut outside the main dwelling, occasionally it is raided by a wandering elephant, attracted by the smell.
