The Beast of Badiya

Something is munching sheep on the East coast. Is it:

(a) a mountain lion
(b) an (extinct) Arabian cheetah
(c) a wolf
(d) a lost mountain tribe of sorcerors
(e) a blood-sucking vampire-like creature

The smart money's on the latter. In other news, a judge has denied Dubai the chance of holding a trial more momentous than OJ Simpson or Lady Chatterley. The magic bullet-proof onyx man has got six months in Al Slammer:

In a lively court case, the guilty man’s lawyer asked the judge to allow a test to be carried out, where the defendant would have worn the onyx and been shot at to test its powers. The judge refused.

It is the Arabic cousin of the chupacabra, for sure!

DJ: if you open up the 7 Days article that Secret Dubai links to, you'll see that this is what they called it.

And of course everything that we read in the papers and see on the internet is true. ;-)

Stupid Jazz,

Badiya is the area of Fujairah where the beast struck; ergo 'The beast OF Badiya'.

If you want to sound all knowledgeable it is advisable not to make a fool of yourself to begin with.

Gloriously Hilarious ;)

This is not due process. The least they could have done was take-up the guilty man's offer to prove himself innocent.

Now, we'll never know, will we?

If it's not too late and since there's no such thing as a mistrial here, both he and his lawyer should ask for a new judge. And they should do it, like yesterday!
