Friday Funny - Child Custody Battle

  1. Federal Court Ruling

    A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

    The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

    The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.



    After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

    After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Essendon Football Club , whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

  7. <chuckle>

    I have a mate living in Sale who is a mad Carlton supporter. His doorbell plays the team song. He's a RAAFie & when he was stationed up this way he played AFL for Newcastle City even though he lived a fair way from their home ground - the reason being was that they wear Carlton's colours! He's always whingeing to me when they lose. I'm under the impression they are doing better this year than last??

    Federal Court Ruling from the Melbourne Age , Australia (AP)

    A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama
    yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should
    have custody of him.

    The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the
    judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with
    the child custody law and regulations requiring that family
    unity be maintained to the degree possible.

    The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt
    beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to
    live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with
    his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

    Sorry, don't mean to be a smart arse, but I've made it a personal mission to use every emoticon. The fact that this joke was posted last week has just helped me tick another one off the list. :wink:
