So while we await the serious business of the day ... those naughty judges and their 'judicial IT equipment', eh? Stand-up comedians will devote whole five-minute riffs on those w*****s in wigs, no doubt.
Reminds me of a funny episode from the world of work. I was once an exec at a firm with a software division, and one of our IT lads, an Asian chap as many of them are in that line, was bang to rights on some serious business misdemeanour, bad enough for summary dismissal. We hauled him in, had his laptop impounded while he was having his fortune read for him, gave him the black bag and showed him the door.
He pleaded with us to be allowed to download some personal stuff from the laptop. We decided this was fair enough, since he had to travel a lot for the firm and we all understood you have to conduct a bit of personal admin when you are away from home for days at a time. But the downloading had to be under close supervision, with a trusty on the keyboard.
We all looked at each other, and one of the board, a very straight-shooting Asian lady, said "leave this to me". She had a fair idea what she was going to find, and it wasn't just his personal banking ...
Anyhow, she made him suffer exquisite agonies of embarrassment in our open-plan office. It was bloody funny.
