One of the funniest stories ever!

Ok, since I have become somewhat internet savvy, with the ability to
surf and find far out stories, I have come across some beauts. But this
one just might take the cake. An internet company called 'Poodles as
Pets' has, as the article I read aptly stated, "fleeced" as many as 2000
Japanese citizens. Based out of Australia and England, 'Poodles as Pets'
marketed poodles as must-have accessories for the Japanese rich and
glamorous. The problem? They were sending their unwitting clientele
neatly coiffured lambs, passing them off as dogs! I am not joking, and
yes, I have been laughing for the last 10 minutes! Apparently poodle
dogs are very rare in Japan, thus few people know what they actually
look like. The scam was discovered as several owners began to question
why their "dogs" never barked or ate their dog food! The kicker was
when a leading Japanese actress went on a TV talk show with pictures
of her "dog", only to be told that it was a lamb! (I REALLY need to stop
laughing now!) Needless to say, the 'Poodles as Pets' website has been
shut down. Well, at least these scammed Japanese folks have their
next big Sunday dinner taken care of - bring on the mint jelly and oven
baked rosemary potatoes!
(the lamb is on the right,
just in case there was
any doubt!)
