After being jostled by reporters and fans during recent tour dates in London, treatment which resulted in an alleged breakdown, Bieber’s management redrafted the irritating Canadian star’s standard appearance agreement, placing the security of the blonde moppet above other priorities such as “providing a safe environment for fans” and a requirement that Bieber actually appear in person during concerts.

“This is a big win for everyone,” said Shanghai deputy mayor Zhang Yueran. “Not only will the alligators eliminate the dead pig problem, we are also restoring them to their natural habitat.”
