Gavels at dawn

Knowing how much the tale of the battling Greek monks was relished, I now bring you Indian judges going mano a mano:

"A senior judge of the Gujarat High Court allegedly roughed up his colleague when the two were together after their customary morning walk in the Judge's Bungalow area of [Ahmedabad] on Thursday. The incident involved Justices B J Shethna and P B Majmudar...something went wrong and Justice Shethna allegedly started hurling abuses and raining fist-blows on Justice Majmudar".

Maybe Justice Shethna had just had enough of Justice Majmudar's incessant misquoting of Sir Edward Coke, maybe it was a struggle over who got to wear the Black Cap that day, or perhaps it was the wheeling out of 'Judge not that ye be not judged' that pushed Shethna over the edge.

WILDLIFE KHAO ANG RUE NAI

Elephants stop, loot trucks on dark road

MANIT SNUBBOON

Chachoengsao _ The chief of Khao Ang Rue Nai wants the road through the wildlife sanctuary closed at night after a herd of elephants held up and looted a string of cargo trucks. About midnight last Saturday a herd of 20 elephants blocked route No.3259 (the Ban Nong Kog-Ban Wang Nam Phon road) holding up 10 trucks, Yoo Senatham said.

They tipped some vehicles on their side, spilling the cargoes on the road so their young could eat, and gorged on sugarcane and tapioca.

''This was not an isolated incident on this road,'' said Yoo Senatham.

A most entertaining addition to the thread. Thank you.

Awwwwww! Very adorable, but we mustn't become complacent! "This was not an isolated incident on this road," said Yoo Senatham presumably sternly and with a manly clenched jaw.

You have been warned! If you are travelling on this highway, best leave the sugar cane and tapioca at home and go with Cokes and KFC.

There was a glorious cartoon of a 'rogue elephant' I saw some years back in which the pachyderm was sporting a monocle and sundry other accoutrements.
