Today a raisin was handed a terrific victory.

Accused of over-shriveling, the raisin known as "Mongo" denied the claim by Mary Higobothman.

Mary claims to have bought dark raisins that were of smooth skin. Mary, according to herself, took all the raisins from the box and placed the raisins in the sun so they would shrivel a little and give it Parisienne lines, a current fashion style with raisin-eaters. Mongo, once let loose from the box of raisins, escaped, leading a bunch of raisins to a place where they hid in the sun. This led to over-shriveling.

The court found the raisins did nothing wrong, and the fault was that of Mary for opening the box and tempting them with the sunlight.
