    It will be interesting to see how the rest of the jury will be with the cat..

    Rest of Jury: We vote guilty.

    Cat: Meow meow

    Rest of Jury:... We'll take that to mean guilty...

    A penguin became a knight? For real?

    Maybe animals are becoming our equals slowly... wish they would be more equal in intelligence though!

    The only time animals would ever be smarter than humans is when humans believe animals can be smarter than them.

    However, the request for the cat's exemption was refused by a jury commissioner and Mrs Esposito was told that Sal 'must attend' Suffolk Superior Crown Court.

    Sheesh, I thought Phoenix Wright was going crazy when Polly the Parrot was called as a witness, but even that makes more sense than this.

    I can't believe that they refused to excuse him from jury duty, too!

    Massachusetts...wow, that place has issues. It took me a minute to figure out how to spell it, too.

    Hmm... or when animals learn to speak our language or make even 1/100 of the scientific discoveries humans have made.
