While facing racketeering charges among other charges, a reputed New York mafia operative was granted a court order to force the United States Drug Enforcement Administration to state whether or not it had inserted a radio tracking device up his ass before letting him go after an arrest a few months earlier.
"We can confirm that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration did not implant a tracking device in defendant Manny J.' Poopoo The Signal' Faroni's rear end," said a prepared statement by U.S. Attorney Michael Hindersohn.
Then, apparently having heard "Manny" a joke around the office, couldn't help adding, "nor did we help in any way any aliens probing Manny's ass."
The statement, issued in response to the order Manny requested from U.S. District Judge Thomas Adkins, also added, "Butt we cannot speak, however, for any extraterrestrial beings whom the government is unaware of at the present time."
After reading the last comment officially in court, Judge Adkins demanded that the government immediately have it's representative in court, Attorney Hindersohn, apologize to Mr. Faroni and to the court but could not be heard even after pounding his gavel for at least two minutes before ordering everybody out and the court and case closed.
