The whole of Newcastle is abuzz with the theft of Thunder, the miniature pony, from Weber’s Circus last night. (Read the whole gripping affair in the Herald here.)
The more cynical among you may suspect that Thunder is “stolen” in every town that Weber’s visits, each time being conveniently recovered, unharmed, a few hundred metres away. Tut tut. There may be no people like show people, but that would be just … well, funny.
