There's Nobody Here But Us Chickens!

I've lost my grip on reality! Big hearted scousers have set up a mini shrine to a baby who was left dead in an alley way in Oakfield Road (in Anfield, Liverpool) following police cordoning off the street. Word spread around the city as "Paramedics could not identify the body and neither could the attending police doctor, who studied the foetus left outside Anfield Tackle". Rumours spread around the schools, pubs and in taxis about the incident however "The corpse was taken to a nearby hospital where it was later identified by medical staff as a chicken". This didn't stop a shrine being set up with flowers, teddy bears and handwritten notes (picture from the Echo) Yesterday Merseyside Police issued the statement: "Stop grieving, it's only a chicken!"
