What an Odd Looking Poodle

An incredible Internet scam was recently uncovered when Japanese film star Maiko Kawakami appeared on a talk show with photos of her new pet poodle. A sharp-eyed host informed the poor girl that her beloved dog was in fact . . . a lamb with an elaborate haircut.

How could this happen? Well, it seems poodles are quite rare in Japan, and few people know how to spot them. So a criminal mastermind started a website called Poodles as Pets (in Japanese, of course) and began selling "poodles" at discount prices. Thousands of people in Japan couldn't resist. What they received were British and Australian lambs styled to resemble the fancy pooches. As you might imagine, a police investigation has been launched.
