BOOK QUOTE OF THE DAY
The unfeasibly heart-jolting shock once, as a tome fell heavily open at some much-visited page, divided itself neatly in two blocky halves along the spine — and you see, guiltily, that you’ve broken it.” – Richard K. Morgan

Old MacDonald had a farm

 

A farmer has been arrested in suspicion of supplying horsemeat after falsely claiming it to be beef.

 

Old MacDonald, 59, was thought to have run a successful cattle farm; renowned for his seemingly high quality beef produce. However after receiving numerous anonymous tip-offs from concerned locals, a police raid late last Tuesday afternoon found only horse remains in his on-site slaughterhouse.

 

Old MacDonald was detained by police shortly afterwards and was taken to EE-I-EE-I-O country police station for questioning.

 

The farm in question has been temporarily shut down, and two other local farms are being investigated.

 

One local, who has asked to remain unnamed, said “I became concerned after I heard a neigh here and a neigh there, during a morning walk past the farm. I feel outraged, we all trusted him.”

 

 

This is an article I wrote based on a nursery rhyme, its a small method to take a story and turn it into active news. I used the guardian’s little pig advert as inspiration.
