Shambo, the Hindu God was today removed from his place in front of a webcam, to another place, and unritualistically slaughtered, much to the chagrin of his many followers. Many of those followers had not heard of his existence several weeks ago, but took up his cause anyway.
The mean and vengeful DEFRA took their god away and shoved a bolt in his brain.
"Good," said local farmer Giles. "The thing has been sat there for weeks, possibly, but not definitely, poorly with TB. I mean, if you might have TB, we'd have to treat you, wouldn't we? The treatment round here is death. Stops the spread, you see."
Muhammed Jones, a local, was upset following the lack of a reprieve. "It was a bit like the movies this morning, with the baddie strapped into the electric chair, and the audience waiting for the last moment phone call that didn't come. Still, it was entertaining while it lasted."
Muhammed, fresh from a Harry Potter queue in the Midlands, travelled to Wales specially. "Not often you see God dying." he said. "The webcam was pretty boring, too. But not as bad as that cheese one."
A spokesman for DEFRA made a statement, but as it was in Welsh, no-one took any notice.
