Lowri - This court is now in session. All rise while I find the best seat. Okay, now the court is going to prove beyond all doubt that TM (The Mama) picked up a baby cottontail in the carport and DID NOT feed it to me. That is a direct violation of the Law.
TM - Wah wa wa wah?
Lowri - The Law of Lowri. On page 136, it states that any bunny caught trespassing on the property should be immediately fed to Lowri.
TM- Wah, wah wah.
Lowri - You want an attorney? Okay. The court appoints Kevin as the defendant's attorney.
TM - WHA!
Lowri - Just because he is my son doesn't mean he can't be impartial.
How does the defendant plea?
Kevin - GUILTY. May we move on to sentencing?
Lowri - Absolutely, unless TM wants to move on to a trial by my peers. I can assure you that we invariably hand out heftier sentences.
TM - Wa wa wa wah.
Lowri - Evidence? Kevin, sniff her hands.
Kevin - Oh yes, definitely a cottontail. <sniff, sniff> I would say about three weeks old. TM set it free on the other side of the fence, where it promptly scampered away.
Lowri - Yup, guilty. We sentence the defendant to a penalty of treats equal to the bunny's weight, or...
Kevin - EACH, each of us gets treats equal to the bunny's weight.
Lowri - Hmmm, yes, each of us will get treats equal to the bunny's weight, or a month of belly scritches to be performed immediately after work each night on each of us.
Kevin - Are you sure both don't apply?
Lowri - Well, it is her first offense.
