Friday Dwarf Update
Yes, that is a picture of a midget kicking himself in the head.
Why did we choose to start the post off with that disturbing image?
Well, we received this amazingly ridiculous story in our mailbag yesterday, and seeing as it is Friday today, we figured we had to write about it. So before you judge us, dear readers, please read the story:
Filipino 'dwarf' judge loses case
A Philippines judge who said he consulted imaginary mystic dwarves has failed to convince the Supreme Court to allow him to keep his job.
Florentino Floro was appealing against a three-year inquiry which led to his removal due to incompetence and bias.
He told investigators three mystic dwarves - Armand, Luis and Angel - had helped him to carry out healing sessions during breaks in his chambers.
The court said psychic phenomena had no place in the judiciary. The bench backed a medical finding that the judge was suffering from psychosis.
The Manila trial judge had asked the Supreme Court to dismiss the complaint and return him to the bench, after being sacked in April.
"They should not have dismissed me for what I believed," Mr Floro told reporters after filing his appeal in May.
The judge said he had made a covenant with his dwarf friends that he could write while in a trance and that he had been seen by several people in two places at the same time.
Judge Floro reportedly changed from blue court robes to black each Friday "to recharge his psychic powers".
In a letter to the court he said: "From obscurity, my name and the three mystic dwarves became immortal."
However, the Supreme Court said dalliance with dwarves would gradually erode the public's acceptance of the judiciary as the guardian of the law, if not make it an object of ridicule.
Pretty solid effort by the lunatic dwarf judge, if you ask us. Of all the ludicrous aspects in this story, the best is the names of the dwarves: Armand, Luis, and Angel. We here at HPO have never actually met a dwarf, but if we did, we wouldn't think his name would be "Armand."
Which leads us to the video section of this dwarf post:
Nice moves there, little Hindu midget. Apparently, this is a clip from a Tamil movie.
