Who said the Scots have no sense of humour?

Asbo man 'breaks law' by laughing - Scotsman.com News

The Asbo prevents him from laughing at people, staring at anyone or slowly clapping his hands at the actions of others. He is also banned from waving objects at people and adopting a menacing stance.

"I am being systematically criminalised," he said. "There must be terrorist suspects who have more human rights than I've got here."

He added: "Two police officers turned up at my house and charged me with breaching the Asbo by laughing at the neighbours' daughter. They charged me with laughing – specifically and only with laughing. I couldn't believe it. It's absolutely absurd."

Hunt acknowledges that one of the conditions imposed as part of the interim Asbo means that he is prevented from laughing anywhere in the area covered by Highland Council.

I don't think that last condition would cause me many problems.


Good think he didn't stick out his tougue or (shudder) MOCK someone!
