If only they were also punished for driving on the footpath
Why did police raid the home of renowned tattoo artist Boonyong Luang-Jumpol, aka "Ajarn Ton", last week?
A)Because he was tattooing too many tramp stamps on naive girls.
B)Because he was actually using a magic marker to draw tattoos.
C)Because every Chinese symbol he tattooed had the wrong meaning.
D)Because he allegedly gives out "bulletproof tattoos" and his clients were fighting to test the power of their ink. Ajarn Ton claims to be a "sorcerer" tattooist, and followers who bear his tattoos believe they are immune to gunshots and cannot be pierced by a knife or sword. Police raided his home after locals complained that many teenagers who have his tattoos were starting brawls to see if anyone could hurt them. Upon raiding Ajarn Ton's home, police found an arsenal of weapons. Ajarn Ton admitted that many of his teenage clients don't have money to pay for his skin art, and explained, "
[My clients] usually pay me with guns and knives, so I take them. I didn't know that it's illegal."
What new drink did Pepsi release in Japan earlier this week?
B)A drink made of onsen water.
D)A "healthy" drink that contains a fat-blocking ingredient. Pepsi Special includes a dietary fibre supplement known as dextrin, which supposedly makes it difficult for the body to absorb fat while eating or drinking. The Japanese government has approved the cola as "food for specific health uses", and the company ensures that the new drink doesn't have a strong dextrin aftertaste (who knows what dextrin even tastes like?!). Pepsi Special is now being sold across Japan for 150 yen (B58).
How was a Cleveland woman punished for driving on the footpath to avoid waiting for a school bus that was unloading children?
A)She had to explain where babies come from to all the kids.
B)She was in charge of cleaning up all the vomit on the school bus.
C)She was made to help all the students with their homework.
D)She was ordered to wear a sign saying: "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus." A judge at the Cleveland Municipal Court decreed that 32-year-old Shena Hardin had to wear the sign for two days, while standing at a public intersection. Hardin also had her licence suspended for 30 days, and had to pay $250 (B7,670) in court fees.
