And people complain about some of our laws here in the United States:

Here is a summary of story which is supposed to be from an actual court case in Australia, # 12659 which just cracked me up:


A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus.

She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her.

She immediately moved to another seat.

This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again.

The man seemed more amused.

When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing

she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.

The case came up in court.

The judge asked the man (about 20 years old)

what he had to say for himself

The man replied,

'Well your Honor, it was like this:

when the lady got on the bus,

I couldn't help but notice her condition.

She sat down under a sign that said,

'The Double Mint Twins are coming' and I grinned

Then she moved and sat under a sign that said,

'Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling,' and I had to smile.

Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said,

'William's Big Stick Did the Trick,' and I could hardly

contain myself.

But, Your Honor, when she moved the fourth time

and sat under a sign that said,

'Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident!'

... I just lost it.'

'CASE DISMISSED!!'

The snopes website is a good place to go to see if urban legeneds are true or not.

Claim: Expectant mother produces growing cascade of guffaws by reseating herself under a series of ads on a bus.

Which is why I stated "is supposed to be" and did not state definitely. I was suspicious when there was no link to the legal case. It is still funny however, and this is posted in chit-chat, not breaking news.....

I think you will find that is a joke, a fairly old one.

Its been around almost as long as joke emaills.

If we had a law like that here in the US I'd be in jail. I am always laughing! Laughter is good for you!
