« Your Honor, you cannot condemn this poor man to one year of prison for only stealing a cube of chicken broth » the lawyer said.
« No, that’s true » the Judge replied, « but after stealing it, it was not necessary to use a bottle of oil to hit the poor old lady who had witnessed the incident. Nor did he need to set fire to the soup shelf in order to erase his finger prints. Nor did he need to lock-up the shop manager when he wanted to flee. And most of all, there was no need to force the shop manager to swallow the cube in order to get rid of the evidence… He should at least have removed the packaging from the cube!
