Fact is life is not like Law and Order, and most trials are really, really boring. Even ones about murder and such. But when are they not boring? When they’re about a guy stealing 40,000 coathangers from various hotels. Here is a real excerpt from the trial going on in the UK right now.
Counsel: Now, Mr Chrysler – for let us assume that that is your name – you are accused of purloining in excess of 40,000 hotel coat hangers.
Chrysler: I am.
Counsel: Can you explain how this came about?
Chrysler: Yes. I had 40,000 coats which I needed to hang up.
Counsel: Is that true?
Counsel: Then why did you say it?
Chrysler: To attempt to throw you off balance.
Go here to read the entire excerpt from the trial, and hopefully more awesomeness will be revealed as it continues. What is the possible sentence going to be here? I vote they make him work as a janitor at the hotel for a year. But he’d probably end up stealing even more stuff.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
