An 8-year old boy who disobeyed his mothers advice not to pull funny faces has been left permanently disfigured after the wind suddenly cahnged direction.
Little Uder from Bavaria was entertaining the other kids at the kindergarten by sticking his tongue up his nose and dragging his eyelids downwards when a freak storm swept through the playground.
"I've warned him time and time again, " said Uder's worried mother, "don't pull faces, Uder, because if the wind changes you'll be left like that. And would he listen? Of course not, silly boy"
Uder's disfigurment has attracted the attentions of curious freak show owners who have offered him big-money contracts to tour the country with them.
But Uder's mother is more worried about the boys future.
"Uder is such a disobedient child and I'm terrified that he'll continue to disobey me", said Mr.s Uder, "I'm worried he'll start staring into the sun and recently I've seen him running through the house with scissors".
