It's an allegation you may not want to read over breakfast—especially if you're having bacon. According to a new biography of British Prime Minister David Cameron being serialized in the Daily Mail, Cameron belonged to a club known for "bizarre rituals and sexual excess" when he was a student at Oxford University, and as part of his initiation into the Piers Gaveston Society, he "inserted a private part of his anatomy" into a dead pig's mouth. The book, Call Me Dave, also claims that cocaine was freely available at dinner parties at the leader's home. In less scandalous revelations, Cameron's friends from his Oxford days say he liked to sit in his dorm room smoking pot and listening to Supertramp.

The book was co-authored by Lord Ashcroft, a major donor to Cameron's Conservative Party who's rumored to have turned against the leader when he didn't give him a top job after the party's 2010 election victory, the Guardian reports. The biography claims the information about what the British press is calling #piggate came from a Conservative member of Parliament, who had allegedly seen a photo of the incident. The authors admit that it could be "a case of mistaken identity," though there have been many accounts of pig's heads being present at "debauched parties" during Cameron's time at Oxford. "It's a no comment from us. On any of it," a Cameron spokesperson tells the Independent. (More David Cameron stories.)
