Friday Follies 2.28

A federal judge is allowing a lawsuit by a Hawaii man against the publisher of an online virtual-world game go forward.

For the second time in as many years, a Wisconsin man has been accused of assaulting someone for having too many items in the express lane at the grocery store. (via)

If you hadn’t heard already, a U.S. District Court has ruled that the “easy, daily bowel movements” from a high fiber diet in prison is not a constitutional right. Legal Blog Watch summarizes.

Okay, the story itself is bizarre enough. A man has dollar bills fall out of his butt during a strip search at jail.

Equally bizarre is the Seattle man who, when confronted by a Radio Shack clerk about shoplifting, “dropped his pants exposing his penis and stated that he had a ‘flesh eating bacteria’” to which he would expose the clerk. When the county jail refused to admit him “due to an unspecified medical condition,” the man was taken to a hospital, where he escaped from custody by walking out of the emergency room. (via)

The truth? I thought we were talking about a court of law.
