6mm-Minis

6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

HUMOUR: "Best Comeback Evah!" (26 August 2008)

.Top: Clever cop doesn't put up with criminal lawyer guff...
Hi All,

I've always had an odd sense of humour as anyone who knows me or follows my blog can tell you. My buddy Leopold sent me this one and I thought it well worth sharing. I stood jury duty earlier this year and wish we had a cop on the stand like this one.

If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the policeman's credibility...

Q: 'Officer -- did you see my client fleeing the scene?'
A: 'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'

Q: 'Officer -- who provided this description?'
A: 'The officer who responded to the scene.'

Q: 'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?'
A: 'Yes, sir. With my life.'

Q: 'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?'
A: 'Yes sir, we do!'

Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room?'
A: 'Yes sir, I do.'

Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker?'
A: 'Yes sir.'

Q: 'Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?'
A: 'You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'

The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year's 'Best Comeback' line -- and we think he'll win.

I hope to post some mini photos soon as well. I've played quite a few mini games lately:
- 28mm Pig Wars (Hungarians vs. Irish vs. French)
- 28mm Legend of the High Seas (pirates)
- 28mm Warhammer Fantasy Battles (undead vs. orcs)
- 10mm Alien Squad Leader (Bugs vs. Imperials)
- And several more...

Just have to haul my lazy tush out to process the photos and write the gaming sessions up... LOL ;o)

Have a great Tuesday!

And good gaming to you!

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.
