Saturday, former state governor, Sarah Palin received a summons from a judge in Juneau for a case that has been tied up in court for nearly two years.
The case involved twelve mimes Palin had placed out with Alaskan state highway workers. The mimes were in training and the former governor had thought it a great idea for the mimes to do traffic.
"Holding up traffic usually makes the drivers angry", Palin had reportedly told the court hearing two years ago. "So I thought it would be more fun if they were entertained while they sat and twiddled their thumbs. The mimes would get to practice and the drivers would have something to do while waiting."
Only it didn't turn out that way.
By the end of the first day, three mimes had been injured and the others chased off. Instead of improving the situation, it had made it worse as ordinarily calm people lost their tempers completely, with one CPA chasing a mime until each of them had nearly suffered a heart attack.
Now the case is coming up in court as the three injured are suing for injuries, etc and the other nine suing for having been placed in a life threatening situation.
The case is set to begin this Thursday.
