This bit of news from a London newspaper caught my attention:
Downstate last week here in Florida, I’m not exactly sure where, maybe Orlando, a dork disturbed mourners in a cemetery by pretending to be a ghost.
Anthony Stallard, a British tourist age 24, had been bounding a soccer ball against tombstones then decided he would try to scare some people attending a funeral.
Police stopped him.
He was throwing himself backwards, waving his arms and going “whooooh”, the prosecutor said in court.
It was not clear whether this action was exactly illegal.
Nevertheless, the judge ordered Stallard to pay a fine of $125… “For stupidity”.
