Cyprus hits Earthquake back!!!


The Cypriots have hit back after being struck, without provocation, by a earthquake.

They shook their plucky hairy fists in the air, stamped their feet on the ground then all went home.

The quinsitentially Greek, idyllic village of Nicotina has a population of 1.2 million.
