Farmer Covers Mercedes In Slurry After Owner Parks In His Field
A viral video has emerged of a farmer coating a Mercedes-Benz in slurry after finding it parked in his field:
The farmer - reportedly from Cornwall - is spreading slurry in his field as he approaches a Mercedes-Benz near the gate.
As he gets closer to the vehicle, the farmer can be heard saying: "The beach is nice and busy today - everyone social distancing I suppose. That busy, they've decided to park in the field."
The farmer's intentions become clear as he edges closer still to the car and explains to a child, whose voice can also be heard from the tractor: "Could see I was spreading slurry. I'm nearly finished mate - and I'm not stopping."
Then, as the flying s*** creeps towards the Merc, the farmer delivers his James Bond-esque sign-off: "I hope you have as much fun washing your car as I'm going to have painting it for ya."
Seconds later, the Benz is transformed with a glossy, fresh brown coat.

The reaction to the video online has been mixed. On the one hand, there are those who inherently enjoy seeing a Mercedes covered in s***, particularly one that is presumably illegally parked.
One person who shared the vid wrote: "If you're going to the beach and there's nowhere to park, don't illegally use a farmer's field... especially when they are spreading slurry. Only in Cornwall."
Another said: "Personally I don't see a problem with the farmer doing this, if you have the stupidity to park on someone's property illegally then I'm afraid you deal with the consequences he got off lightly, park on my drive and you would be blocked in for many hours to come!"
However, there were others who thought the farmer took his retaliation too far.
One person said: "I am sorry, I think it is mean and horrible. Used to live in Cornwall and loved it but this is disgraceful. He did it on purpose for no good reason at all. Obviously even this damned virus situation hasn't changed some people for the better."
Whatever you think of the video, let it serve as a reminder that not all farmers love having uninviting guests on their land.
