Description: Bus Ads, Pregnant Woman
A young woman, several months pregnant, boarded a bus and sat opposite a
young man, he smiled, and feeling embarrassed she changed her seat.
But it was to no avail, for the young man smiled even more broadly when
she sat down. Again she moved to another seat, he grinned and again after
the fourth move, the young man just rolled up and roared with laughter.
The woman complained and duly summoned him.
The sequence in Court:
Judge : Well, young man, have you anything to say in your defence
against this charge?
The young man: Well, your Honour, when the young lady entered the bus,
her condition was obvious. However, that did not prompt my smile, but
she sat under an advertisement which read: Coming shortly - The Gold
Rush Twins". The lady seemed indignant when I smiled and she got up and
took another seat beneath a shaving stick advertisement, which read:
"William's stick did the trick.' She moved a third time and sat beneath
a poster which read: " Sloane's linament will remove swelling." It was
after she had moved her seat 4th time that I lost control of my
merriment for the above was a slogan: "Dunlop Rubber Goods would have
prevented this accident."
Judge : Case Dismissed.
