Last week, I questioned the sanity of people attending a conference dedicated to hammering out issues between humans and fairies. As it turns out, maybe they were just getting out in front of the issue (via PrawfsBlawg):
A family in Saudi Arabia has taken a genie to court, alleging theft and harassment, according to local media.Who knew genies were hard up for cell phones?
The lawsuit filed in Shariah court accuses the genie of leaving them threatening voicemails, stealing their cell phones and hurling rocks at them when they leave their house at night, said Al-Watan newspaper.
An investigation was under way, local court officials said.
Maybe I should open up a law firm that specializes in suing supernatural beings. Better yet, I'll represent them! That way I can bill by the hour instead of holding out for a verdict. Of course, I might have trouble making sure they get the bill . . .
