Dear Judge Davies


Sincerely yours (dictated but not read)

I would say more on the subject but I think this covers all the salient points.

For those not in the know, the details on the Twitter Joke Trial can be found here
Which is also, coincidentally, a good place to donate a few pounds to the trial fund.
Which you WILL do because we all know what I get like when i’m cranky.

To sum it up very briefly, upon finding Robin Hood Airport (please don’t direct abusive tweets to @DSA_Airport, that would be awful) closed, Paul Chambers tweeted the following…

“Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your shit together otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!”

The man was joking, anyone (with the exception of the apparently educated, clearly medicated Judge Davies) can see that.
I support Paul Chambers entirely in his appeal and pray to the made up beard in the sky that, just this once, justice is served.

Let’s face it folks, if trouble is brewing for so called “menacing” tweets, I will be summarily executed at dawn.

Remember my last words…

“Make something up, something that looks good on a t-shirt”

  1. Didn’t someone say once that the first caveman to hurl insults instead of rocks was on the path of higher evolution?

  2. Exactly. If we all used hypothetical people to back up our arguments, even though they fly in the face of common sense, we could justify ANYTHING. Even Lady Gaga.

  3. Good point Angela and thank you for raising it.

    There was, of course, the mention of some fictional Blue Rinse Brigade member who may or may not have been disturbed by the tweet.

    Well, if you look really, really hard you might find a Jewish person who thought Hitler had the right idea, wouldn’t make him right though would it…

  4. You forgot to mention the exception of “Imaginary Elderly Couple”.

    I Am Spartacus.
