UK satire site says Romney blames Scotland for Hurricane Sandy, some people don’t get the joke

Earlier today, UK site News Thump, purveyors of “UK Spoof News and Satire,” published a satirical article about Mitt Romney blaming Scotland for Hurricane Sandy:

U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has dismissed claims that Hurricane Sandy was ‘an act of God’, and pointed his finger instead at the ‘brogue nation’ of Scotland.

Backers of Romney, including tycoon Donald Trump, have urged him to invade the Golf State before they can strike again.

Oil-rich, nuclear weapon-shy and occupying the strategically significant ‘bloody freezing’ zone just above England, Scotland has been accused of being a ‘training ground’ for bad weather.

Most understood it was a joke:
