Falling audience numbers for the Mutts Dog Show have encouraged organisers to take the show in a new direction.
Following cricket's example in getting audiences by making the game more exciting in slogs over 20 overs, Mutts Chairlady Monica Pevensy Bay Station has inistiated a new development which should get viewing figures up and advertising revenue in.
Monica is letting a cat out of a bag in the middle of the arena to see how the posh doggies react. Secret trials indicate turmoil with blood and tears. One cat scrathed five dogs in as many minutes leaving them yelping and the crowd entranced. Another time the tables were turned and the Queen's Corgi ripped a cat apart.
With music from the Allelluia Chorus played at deafening levels both dogs and cats began to turn on each other in an orgy of mayhem.
Opposition to the new trends at Mutts has come from Colonel Gaddafi of Libya who has complained that killing defenceless beings is disgusting. 'Some people will just kill to retain their power' he complained 'this Mutts show has clearly been taken over by Al Queada.'
The United Nations has explained that no international law has been broken so it cannot intervene to stop the cat and dog slaughter. However when all the animals are dead the UN intend to issue a strong statement of disapproval.
