    That is just too good.

    I feel kinda bad for the kid, though. He has to deal with the stigma of having a whole big court case dealing with the fact that he had a hedgehog chucked at him. Can't make him look good at school.

    Am I the only one imagining this attack and visualizing the hedgehog spinning up into a ball, like Sonic, while it is flying toward that poor kid. :confused:

    I was thinking the exact same thing! :D One of my housemates is a Kiwi, and we make sure to print stuff like this out and hang it on the fridge. It always gets him twisted.

    Reminds me of Python.

    "Next, I eat the banana. Thus, disarming him."

    That's a pretty sorry choice of weapon! Couldn't he find a board with a nail in it or something?

    Clearly the only solution is to ban hedgehogs.

    Now that is just plain nasty. :mad:

    Wonder if the perp got to sit on the Group W bench, and if so, what they thought of his story?? :p

    (Be warned. 6 more posts and I can finally start to read the Politics, Religion, Social Issues thread.
    No way I was reading it before I could have my say. No sir.)

    What, you'd put him in with the mother rapers, the father stabbers, and the father rapers?

    Clearly his defense should be that the hedgehog leaped from his arms and hurled itself at the victim, thus causing the wounds. If anything the defendant was merely trying to stop the deranged, suicidal animal. :eek:

    If only the hedgehog had survived, it would surely corroborate the defendant's story.

    Case dismissed!

    You eat the hedgehog, thus disarming your opponent.
