Japan: Poodles fooled by Austrialian and British Sheep

"The scam was uncovered when Japanese moviestar Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.

She was crestfallen when told it was a sheep."


"Then hundreds of other women got in touch with police to say they feared their new "poodle" was also a sheep.

One couple said they became suspicious when they took their "dog" to have its claws trimmed and were told it had hooves."



ahahahahahaha

 :wall:

Were MrW and I the only one that saw the link to it being a hoax in the first paragraph??

This story has been exposed as a fraud. ninemsn discovered on Friday that Japanese police had never heard of the alleged scam, and that key elements in The Sun's original story had been misreported. Read more about the poodle scam hoax story.

And of course who could forget...

Just the facts, ma'am.  :cheese:  SHEESH!

It didn't go to another version of the story, if you read it, it was a story about how the original news story was not true.
And that is when I went to snopes to double check it.

Yes, that's why I said I'm just trying to play along(with the hoax bit).
And then to make sure I don't offend any japanese folks, I wanted to be sure and throw out some love.  ;)

I'm polish and I take the jokes.  I think this silly hoax has it's place in humor, it's up to everyone's style.

Cheers.
