The Law is an Ass

 Throw his ass in jail your honour.

An Egyptian donkey has been jailed for stealing corn on the cob from a field belonging to an agricultural research institute in the Nile Delta, local media reported today.
The ass and its owner were apprehended at a police checkpoint that had been set up after the institute's director complained that someone was stealing his crops, the state-owned Al-Ahram daily said.

The unnamed ungulate was found in possession of the institute's corn and a local judge sentenced him to 24 hours in prison.

The man who had his ass thrown in jail got off with a fine of 50 Egyptian pounds ($11.40).

I am curious if the ass was put in solitary, what they fed it and where and how he pooed? We need to know these details.

Talk about animal cruelty.

No doubt the donkey was sentenced to hard labour.

How he pooed? Surely he would poo the same way he always does.
