A meth lab gets busted in the Shire

I don’t care how irrelevant it is it, I simply must share this delightful photo.


The Law has finally caught up with the Seven Dwarfs.

Amish jailed by Kentucky judge over warning triangle fine non-payment (The Guardian, 16 September 2011):

Eight Amish men have been jailed by a judge in Kentucky for non-payment of fines after refusing to fix reflective orange warning triangles to the back of their horse-drawn buggies.

The unusual suspects, whose mugshots have been published online, were arrested for misdemeanours. A ninth man was arrested but not jailed.

The group hail from the stricter Old Order Swartzentruber sect and objected to the bright triangles on modesty grounds, saying they were barred from wearing or displaying anything bright or colourful.


Note the interesting, more spiritual notion of “modesty” alluded to in the last paragraph.
