Judges betray humanity for goats

We often think that problems with the judicial system are reserved explicitly for the U.S. Turns out it’s not true. In Australia, animals have figured out how to work the system.

At some point last year, in some city (the story isn’t big on giving details), Gary the goat was arrested and fined A$440 for eating a city flower bed. His owner, James “Jimbo” Bazoobi, a comedian apparently somehow indebted to the goat, launched into action. He argued in court that the fine was written to the goat, and not a person, so the charge couldn’t possibly stick.

He won.
