    The Court of tMP opens today with Judge Mumsie* presiding.

    * The people have requested another Judge and Judge Super_Sop now presides. :clap:

    Case #01

    Mumsie v 2nd Man Down

    The charge is as follows:

    Unsolicited meanness towards Mumsie by 2nd Man down.

    I put to you the latest available pieces of evidence:
    Excert from an MSN discussion between Mumsie and Crawfy:
    Mumsie : the little grey cells are sleepy
    2md Bring on: well to be fair there won't be many left either will there?

    You're in Ireland?? I thought it had gone quiet...I just assumed I'd gone deaf!

    Hey Look!!! June 4 is . . . . . Old Maid's Day!!! national Dinie Day!! ;):biggrin::tongue: *hides rather quickly!!*

    ^ is giving mumsie lip!! :eek: ^ (Hornikaz) wants to be careful cos ^^(Mumsie) can kill a man from ten paces with one blow of her tongue!!!!!
    The prosecution calls for witnesses to bring forth and state any evidence of further acts (oh yea, there's quite a few of them out there) of meanness by the defendent.

    You, the tMP Jury are requested to pronounce the defendent Guilty or Not Guilty as charged.

    You, the tMP Jury are then requested to bring forth suggestions for punishment should the defendent be found Guilty!

    OK. Mumsie, being the wonderful, tactful sweet natured Supermumsie that she is, listens to the opinions of the Jury and gracefully concedes the point.

    Super_Sop, you are now Supreme Judge on this case. Congratulations on your appointment.

    I reckon he should have his legs waxed as his punishment :tup:biggrin:

    Or help mumsie pay up for the buckets of hair dye she buys each month to help cover up her "silver highlights" :tongue:

    I question the charge of "Unsolicited meanness towards Mumsie by 2nd Man down".

    Did you Mumsie, or did you not - invite 2MD on your recent trip across the local pond.... and does that then make the alleged meanness shown by 2MD as solicited rather than unsolicited...?

    *I'd make a good judge eh...;)

    It certainly does! OK Judge John! You're elected!

    Should I have invited 2nd Man Down on our trip?

    And now I'm saying nothing else until I have my Lawyer! So there! :rolleyes:

    Should is not the issue here. Should is subjective. In my court we deal with facts. Did is the issue. Did is objective.

    I will instruct the jury in this regard during my summing up, but for now... "Jury, you must take this into account when considering your verdict. It is a fact that the defendant did not get invited across the local pond. Is it then, beyond reasonable doubt that the crime to which he has been accused - that of meanness to said complainant - was sloicited or not?"

    For the time being... Judge John... out.

    If we end up with a "hung jury", who's going to carry out the sentence?

    As the counsel for the prosecution, once my client's case against the defendant is proven, the person getting to carry out the sentence will be me.

    And if he is also proven to have a crazy frog ring tone, the punishment sought WILL be cruel and unusual.

    2nd Man Down is going down!

    By the time I've finished with him, he'll be playing Bb Bass!

    Point of Order

    Your Honour, having discussed the case with my client, I am going to approach the bench. I would ask permission, but in the face of such partiality, realise my request would be denied!

    One asks this:Should it not be 2nd Man Down's lawyer who questions the prosecution? Is the Judge overstepping his bounds here?

    And where is the defendent, as a matter of interest? Does his absence not show his total disregard for this case? Does his absence show contempt for the court's proceedings? Indeed does not his absence from the court show utter contempt for both your Honour, and worse still....


    I await your considered opinion, your Honour.
