Tin Hattery is a phrase used to describe a ludicrous media induced panic that gullible fools take to heart. The term originated with morons wearing tin foil hats to protect their brain waves from CIA mind probes or some other such nonsense. A well known example of this phenomena can be found in the movie "Signs".

1: "Fucking bird flue...It's all a bunch of tin hattery if you ask me."

2: "Mad cow? Pffffft,That's not a mad cow. Show me a cow foaming at the mouth and biting the heads off of chickens and then i'll believe in this whole mad cow tin hattery.
