In a bizarre twist of irony, the food that Angela Dowry had arranged in the shape of a face on her son’s plate has reportedly eaten the very child that was going to eat it.
It seems that cucumber mouth opened and swallowed the 3-year old whole, while the cherry tomato eyes swiveled, looking for more prey.
“I fed the face the cat, a chair, and my neighbour” said Mrs. Dowry in her court appearance yesterday. “And for now it seems satisfied. Who knows when it will grow hungry again, though?”
The judge ruled that, while tragic, this case has provided such humourous irony that the food-face be spared its life, in the hope that it will provide more comical news stories in the future.
