Florida DJs cause ‘di-hydrogen monoxide’ tap water scare

This is what happens when you have a barely scientifically literate listening population, I guess:

“Florida country radio morning-show hosts Val St. John and Scott Fish are currently serving indefinite suspensions and possibly worse over a successful April Fools’ Day prank. They told their listeners that ‘dihydrogen monoxide’ was coming out of the taps throughout the Fort Myers area. Dihydrogen monoxide is water.”
