A lawyer in Kazakhstan, who was hired by his client to represent him in a case involving an inheritance, was unhappy with the judge’s ruling. So he approached the bench holding a flyswatter and said, “Let’s not hang about arguing the law here, let’s decide this with flyswatters” and then laid a smack down on the judge, swatting him three times! The opposing lawyer stepped in to restrain him and the judge wrestled with him as well. The entire incident was captured on closed-circuit TV. The lawyer has since been barred from practicing and was charged with assault.
A kid was hanging out in his front yard with a friend when they heard a noise inside and decided to have a look in the living room – where they spotted George Martin stretched out and enjoying a cocktail. When he refused to leave, the boys grabbed a knife and ran to the basement to call 911. When cops arrived on the scene, Martin was still there, with the half-emptied bottle of booze on a table next to him. He told the officers he thought he was at an address that was 10 miles away! He was supposed to meet a woman named Jeannie – and appeared to be confused about how he got into the house. He was booked on charges of criminal trespassing.
A warning to parents – if you set limits for your kids, you may have a child who grows up to be like Lee Weir. The 27-year-old from New Zealand, who wasn’t allowed to watch the Simpsons when he was a kid, has just set the Guinness World Record for most tattoos of a single, particular cartoon character – Homer Simpson – 41 to be exact. Each one shows Homer in a different incarnation including as a jack-in-the-box and as a donut. Weir, who gave up drinking this year, says the money he spent on the tattoos is what he would have otherwise used to buy booze.
