This story is just so odd that I’m not sure how to go about synopsising it:

It is almost two weeks since a disturbing story broke about a little boy named Ondrej who had been severely abused by his mother. From that point on, the whole thing became more and more curious, as somebody said to be his 13-year-old sister disappeared from a children’s home. First it emerged that the authorities had no record of “Anna”, who Ondrej’s mother had been attempting to adopt. Hundreds of police officers searched the country for “Anna”, in vain. Now it seems that the alleged 13-year-old is in fact a diminutive 34-year-old woman. The girl has never existed, apparently…

Performance artist Mark McGowan has eaten what he claims was a cooked corgi in a protest over the Royal Family’s treatment of animals.

As he ate the meatballs, McGowan reported: “It’s disgusting. It’s really, really, really disgusting.”
