Subject: Tough to get a conviction in some parts...
A couple months back there was a trial in the West Virginia courts. A man
was being tried for fornicating with a sheep, since that's still illegal
there an' all. Anyway, the key witness was an old fella who was walking
along the highway by the farm where the sheep was raised. The prosecutor
asked the witness what he saw:
"Well, I was walkin' along, and saw this sheep just'a eatin' grass. And
then this fella walks up from behind the sheep, real quiet-like."
"And then what?" asked the prosecutor.
"Then he unbuckled his belt, and pulled the sheep close."
"And what happened after that?"
"Well," said the witness, "they sorta shook for a couple of minutes. Then,
afterwards, the sheep turned around... an' licked him!"
Just then one of the jurors leaned over to the jury member next to him and
said, "You know... a good sheep'll do that."
