Someone is threatening to eat his pet rabbit unless he receives $50,000 in donations by 30th June.
Amazingly, he (it’s bound to be a he – a woman would be much more subtle!) has already received nearly $20,000 in donations from complete suckers, er strangers, over the net.
I am torn between admiration for the bare-faced effrontery of the scheme and despair that there are people out there who are foolish enough to have sent him money – nearly $20,000 worth.
Update, April 4: I see he’s now got over $20,000. Sheesh!
