A burrito is not a sandwich, court rules

Dancing eunuchs taxing red-faced shopkeepers

The last one is my favorite.

The new shock strategy, in which sari-clad and heavily made up eunuchs accompany officials on their rounds of crowded shopping areas in a country notorious for tax evasion and non-payment, has been declared a success.


Also known as hijras, they are widely feared and move around towns and cities in groups and demand money on occasions such as marriage or the birth of a child. They are believed to have occult powers.

Obviously, they don't have firearms laws there....

Taco Bell, think outside the bun.

Actually, they apparently do have firearms laws there, as in "no firearms." Because if they didn't have firearms laws, it'd be legal (or at least "not" illegal) to have one and shoot the extortionists. :)

I tend not to automatically assume their legal system is automatically inclusive of all rights except those things specifically enumerated as crimes.
