Naw, officials in Washington have decided not to fine a toddler for littering. Bless. Seems the 2 year old and her mom got slapped with a $75 citation after unopened letters with their names on it were found in an alley. After a little social media ridicule the citations were dropped.

Heavens to Murgatroyd. A British man was fined for carrying a heavy load. Seems he got overly zealous at a rice sale at a local shop and filled his car with 2,000 pounds (800kg) of grain. That would be 40 bags of 20kg rice. Hmm, the $400 fine would make that some very expensive rice.
You swallow a live goldfish and post it on line…that’s a banning right there….. for 5 years Nanny Stater. The dude who can’t own a fish for 5 years was also sentenced to 120 hours community service and given a $800 fine.
A woman in Massachusetts thought she could fool the police by making her very own cardboard license plate, including the blue and red “The Spirit of America” and attach it to her unlicensed car. If she had only remembered to draw an updated inspection sticker on it too. Damn it. That’s a heap of citations right there.
Oooh and the Christmas cheer is getting off to a flying start with a man getting fined for throwing one thousand $1 bills from the third floor of a mall to make it snow money. The 29 year old, who said he had had a rough year, cashed in his last $1000 and let it flutter down into a crowd who were listening to a group singing “Let it snow”. Unfortunately the city police were not amused and handed him a disorderly conduct ticket citing he was just doing it as a publicity stunt to win back his ex. He, in his defence, said he just wanted to “spread some holiday cheer”
Word of warning to anyone planning to play bingo for biscuits while holidaying in Portugal. That’s illegal gambling right there. Portugal police swooped on a group of British ex pats and bundled them into three police vans because they were playing bingo for cookies at a bar. They were all fined over $1000 and the landlady received a 4 months suspended prison sentence. Oh wait, there’s more. The people in the bar , who were not participating in the game, also received a fine for “witnessing illegal gambling”.
