it appears this thing I started because somebody sent me an email with some jokes about folks in states other than theirs has become a fixation
I shoulda stopped when their jokes were used up
I will preface the following by saying that Utah humor is very limited
Virtually every joke I found related to one of three universities
Most of those were unoriginal
The story, below, was ripped from the front page of a leading SLC newspaper. Very interesting...
Justice in Salt Lake City...
Salt Lake City, UT (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of aSalt Lake County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a courtruling over who should have custody of him.. The boy has a history ofbeing beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody tohis aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiringthat family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible..
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat himmore than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. Whenthe judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boycried and said that they also beat him.
After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learningthat domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, thejudge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose whoshould have custody of him.
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the childwelfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the BYU Cougars Football Team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
