Who would you make them swear to?

lakshmi.jpgEarlier this month, I told you about an Italian court issuing a summons for Mickey Mouse and some other cartoon characters. Well a judge in India has given the Italians a one-up — rather than summoning cartoon characters, Judge Sunil Kumar Singh has issued a summons for Ram and Hanuman, Hindu gods! That takes some serious stones, ordering gods to “appear before the court personally.”

Judge Singh is overseeing a property dispute that has been going on for a whopping 20 years. The dispute is over a 1.4 acre plot which has two temples, one which worships Ram and the other which worships Hanuman. Judge Singh first tried to get the gods to show up in court by mailing them notices but, shockingly, the mail was returned for having incomplete addresses. So then he took out a notice in the local papers:

You failed to appear in court despite notices sent by a peon and later through registered post. You are herbey directed to appear directly before the court personally.

My only issue with this is that, if I were the judge, whatever with Ram and Hanuman. I’d be trying to get Lakshmi into my courtroom, cause she’s a hotty man. Know what I’m saying?
