Incredible Mistake

This story is in Spanish, but it is so good that I had to post the video here. Basically, the Romenian army wanted to help the humanitarian effort in Haiti by sending a battalion of mountain troops and 2,000 tons of supplies. However... their defense ministry messed up the names and sent everyone and everything to Tahiti instead!

I guess this is the kind of mess that we only expect to see in financial markets!

UPDATE: Just found out it was a hoax. I guess I should have done my due diligence better! :) Nice one though.

UPDATE2:  The story did appear in Spanish news, but THEY didn't do their due diligence. The story was in fact a hoax from a Romanian website. Nothing like blaming others... ;)
