    We Yanks love you Scots as well.

    "At that time I saw a policeman's hat.Then,I saw that there was a policeman under it"

    That was in Cincinnati,Ohio,USA.

    Very good, I don't doubt any of them after reading Jasper Carrots book on how Americans report accidents in America, get the book its hilarious. eg I saw the sad face of this old man as he bounced over my bonnet. 2/ The man was every where, I had to swerve three times before I hit him. 3/ I was reversing into my drive when I collided with a tree that I don't have. and many more.

    I love these silly things, to add a touch, people sue others for really strange reasons. It is documented a woman filed a lawsuit against Mogan David Wine, because her husband got drunk from it and he slept with the neighbor lady.

    I wonder if the neighbor shared some of that wine?

    I haven't gotten jury duty for a while, but if I were a comedian seeking new material; a N.Y.C. courthouse would be the first place I'd look.
