What's in a Name? Sometimes a Free Pig

A Danish artist is handing out free pigs and goats to Ugandan villagers. All they have to do is change their names to "Hornsleth."

The peculiar donation funded by Kristian von Hornsleth started in June this year when the Hornsleth Village Project Uganda 2006 was registered as a community-based organisation. The beneficiaries must be 18 years and above.

According to Kristian Hornsleth's website, the project is an exposure of the games donors play on the poor people they claim to help. It says donors claim they give free aid, yet they actually take something in return. [Link]
