Britain cracks down on lawlessness.

Is that the way they spell "licence" in the UK?

The (hamster)wheels of justice are turning.

Let the (wood)chips fall where they may.

what a shame that they spend so much time and energy to arrest the woman because she didn't have a license for selling animals. they could have used all that time to come up with a new drink recipe for Paris to throw on Ms. Lohan, you know, something a little more caustic. with all those great minds at work on the arrest, i'm sure that they could come up with something.

"We cannot issue licences to anybody."

So, basically, it is impossible to get a license?

When selling hamsters without a licence is outlawed, only outlaws will sell hamsters without a licence. Or, uh, something.

In court, Ms Maxwell said shop staff had sold the hamster by mistake and the animals were just there to attract people to the shop.

"We really meant to sell him a Norwegian blue parrot," she added.

Whoa, an undercover hamster dealer sting! Britain does NOT mess around.

Scamper died? AWWWWWWWWWWWW ...

>... selling a hamster without a licence."

I wonder if it flunked the written portion or the driving part.

lol, lbff!

So... police buy hamster, fail to feed him, he dies, and the seller gets in trouble with the law?

Britain's legal problems clearly go far beyond the fact that lawyers are forced to wear silly wigs.

*waves to stevie*

He's not dead, he's just resting...

Maybe he's pining for the fjords.

apparently things have changed since this Python sketch...

It seems overboard to me, too, but then I start thinking about "puppy mills" and other places where animals are crowded together and not taken care of. Maybe this woman had a bad history of ill-treating animals.
