Chin-Chin the panda was on trial for entering a New York City restaurant, eating dinner, pulling out a machine gun, and shooting out the windows and doors. The judge looked at Chin-Chins lawyer and proclaimed, "Thirty eyewitnesses saw your client pay for dinner, shoot up the place, and leave. Security cameras caught the entire incident on video. I have no choice but to sentence your client ..."
"Wait a second, your honor," said the lawyer, "My client may be guilty, but there are extenuating circumstances. He couldnt help his behavior that night, and if you look up the word panda in the dictionary, youll have no choice but to agree."
The judge was puzzled, but he had his secretary bring his dictionary into court. There, under the letter P, he found; "PANDA: Black and white bear from China that eats shoots and leaves."
I have claustrophobia combined with fear of success, so I completely fell apart when I did a really good job painting the inside of my closet.
CIRCUIT COURT DOINGS.
This morning a larger number of people than usual gathered in the circuit court room to hear the Gilfillan-McCrillis $5,000 damage suit, which was set for trial today. The motion made Wednesday by the defense for a special venire from which a jury to try the case should be selected was taken up and granted. The case was then postponed until Monday morning at 9 oclock, at which time the sheriff was ordered to have on hand eighteen men "good and true," from whom the jury to try the case will be selected.
County Clerk S. A. Stuckey today filed his answer to the petition of Recorder F. W. Steadley asking for an injunction restraining him from recounting the ballots. The answer sets forth that there are no good reasons why the permanent injunction should be granted. The county clerk also filled a motion asking that the temporary injunction be dissolved for several reasons. The case will be argued tomorrow.
