The People vs Quickroute #101

All rise please.

The honourable Judge Judy presiding.

Will the defendant please rise.

Paddy Quickroute of no fixed abode. It is charged that on the morning of Thursday October 5th, 1995, after an extended amount of after-after nightlife in New Orleans, that you did knowingly, willingly and apparently somewhat wobbly, board a yellow school bus at 8:05am with your younger brother of a similar state. When challenged by the bus driver for your school i.d. you both then presented your Irish passports and paid the child fare and collected your ticket (see evidence exhibit A below).

Furthermore it is charged that you then attempted to entertain the somewhat confused child occupants with a rendition of 'I've Been a Wild Rover' and finally you asked the bus driver to make an unscheduled stop at your hotel for your convenience.

Judge Judy: How do you plead?

Quickroute: Guilty your honour, very guilty :-((

Ha! Good one. The only odd thing that happened to me in New Orleans (I was at a conference) was my colleague and I getting mistaken for a gay couple. It really upset him as he is an Opus Dei head. It upset me because if I was gay I'd have better taste than that.

That is excellent.

Probably no where else in the US other than there would you not have ended up in the slammer...

...or maybe...

....did he swing by the hotel? No? That'll be three Hail Mary's and six hours on your knees.

I wish I had been driving that bus.

Haha . .so it's true the Irish do have a thing for diddly dee songs! Better than what elderly people are doing here . . calling ambulances and using them as taxis!

Brilliant ;-) Go everywhere till you're stopped I say!

@Thriftcriminal: he could've been the only gay Opus Dei in the village!

@Xbox: All based on actual events except for the court appearance

@Queen Goob: No - she made an unscheduled stop to kick us off the bus

@Megan: Be careful what you wish for!

@Baino: They do that in Ireland too

@Conortje: Indeed - nothing ventured, nothing gained!

I think I'll try this next time I'm in need of transport.

Guilty? ...but insane, your homourshipness.

@Stevo: Bail can be expensive!

@Primal: Guilty and insane as charged!
