UK High Court overturns conviction for Twitter joke | Ars Technica

30 07 2012

Yegods – and I hitherto thought the US had a poorly developed sense of humour!! (I learned very early after 9/11 that US border officials have their sense of humour extracted via their left nostril, apparently leaving permanent brain damage).

What a complete and utter waste of police and court time: UK High Court overturns conviction for Twitter joke | Ars Technica.

(I’ll ignore the fact it was the police in Doncaster who, frankly, should have known better.)

Kudos however that when all the money and time had unfortunately already been wasted, sanity ultimately prevailed at the High Court…
