June 4 is a sensitive Date in England

Martin Jahnke, researcher at Cambridge University, and a lousy pitcher, will face trial for a public order offense on June 1, i. e. for throwing a shoe at Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao. Jahnke’s trial had been due to be held on June 2, 3, and 4 at Cambridge Magistrate’s Court, according to the BBC.

The court’s legal advisor told the magistrates that June 4 would be a sensitive date. If the trial lasts no longer than three days, it should now end on June 3.

Iraq Proposes Liberation Day

The Iraqi people, in a referendum that ended yesterday, decided to make May 1 the Day of Liberation from feudal rule. The war that ended the rule of Saddam Hussein ended on May 1, 2003. After 80% of the votes have been counted, a majority of at least 65% is emerging. President Talabani and prime minister Malaki haven’t commented yet.

“Until 2003, we were ruled by a irascible poet with an ugly mustache who sacrificed and ate little babies for a long rule,” said an old woman in the street. “Now we are free at last.”

The Cechnyans are currently voting on a similar project.

OK, just kidding…
