Happy can of worms

A NEW Zealander who invented a toilet that uses worms to produce compost had to first prove the worms were not being traumatised.

Auckland Regional Council told Coll Bell to get an expert's report on the psychological impact on the worms.

He said an official told him: "You have to have someone with the qualifications to say the worms are happy."

His "wormorator" was only approved after a vermiculture expert reported the worms were in excellent health and breeding happily.
