Okay, not as funny as the time I mistook a human head for bacon (though by now I think that particular Denny’s should have gone out of business!), but this is one of the few times that art has made a criminal repent.
BBC NEWS: Bacon mistaken for human head
Police have apologised to an artist after raiding his home when an artwork made out of bacon was mistaken for a human head.
Richard Morrison, 37, of Wavertree, Liverpool, returned home to find his door had been kicked in by police with a search warrant.
They had been acting on a tip off from a criminal who had broken into the artist’s home just days earlier.
He told officer he had seen a human head in Mr Morrison’s house.
But it was in fact a mask made from rashers of bacon, stored in formaldehyde.
