It might be a frivolous news item, but it is obscene.
A RACING PIGEON, A YEAR OLD HEN CALLED NEW KIM, HAS SOLD FOR A WORLD RECORD $1.8M TO A MYSTERY CHINESE BUYER AT AUCTION IN BELGIUM. NEW KIM WON THE 2018 CROWN AS “”ACE PIGEON GRAND NATIONAL MIDDLE DISTANCE”. WHAT A BIRD!
With so much suffering in the world, so many problems that need to be tackled, how removed from reality do you have to be to spend such an obscene amount of money on a pigeon?
