Crimes Perculier
« on: August 08, 2008, 05:48:29 PM »

In 1952 a Nigerian visitor to London was accused of committing an indecent act with a pigeon in Trafalgar Square.

As the law at the time prevented only indecency with an animal, the defence attempted to put the case that a pigeon was not an animal.

The Judge disagreed. The accused was fined 50.00, and a further 10.00 for taking the pigeon home and eating it for dinner.



London taxi drivers are permitted to urinate in public, provided that a member of The London Police Force acts as a witness.
