Three Huge Mistakes

A Tale of Three Blind Mice and Tooth brushing

Three Huge Mistakes

Hard times had come upon the Three Blind Mice, their nursery rhyme was losing popularity as time dragged on. As a consequence the Three Blind Mice had to become traveling tooth brush salesmen, and this week they were in Providence, Rhode Island. Little did they know that it was a felony to sell tooth brushes and toothpaste more than once to the same consumer on a Sunday in Providence. They pulled in early Sunday morning and set up shop right outside a Burger King. Shortly after they had finished setting up shop a old gentleman who went by the name of Mr. Feeny came by asking for a toothbrush and toothpaste, because his grand daughter was going to be staying with him for the weekend. The Three Blind mice were happy to oblige as they loved children. Mr. Feeny made a mental note that they had all ready sold him one tooth brush. After a while the day was finally winding down, it had been a slow day the life of a traveling tooth brush salesmen is rather uneventful. Right as they were about to close up shop Mr. Feeny was back. He pleaded for another toothbrush as the one he had bought for his granddaughter earlier he had lost. The Blind Mice did so and as soon as Mr. Feeny had handed over the money he yelled "FREEZE SCUMBAGS" he pulled out a tazer. The Three Blind mice, were of course stunned. They had no idea what was going on. "Are we going to be arrested" one of the blind mice asked Mr. Feeny. You could sense Mr. Feenys anger growing "Of course you are, you just committed a felony. Do you want the dental business going under?". The Blind Mice finally realized the consequences of what they had done and pleaded for forgiveness, but Mr. Feeny wouldn't budge. He took them to jail where they learned their bail would be set at over five thousand dollars each. None of them could afford to get out. The next day they met with a lawyer, a public defender, who said that they should appeal and try to be acquitted of their crimes since the law was outrageous and Mr. Feeny had a history of being discriminatory towards mice. He also told them that the prosecution was building a strong case against them, the defendants, though he didn't know the details of their story. One of the blind mice suggested that they just claim they were never there if the prosecution tried to call them to the stand, but the lawyer said it would be perjury and to risky even if there were no witnesses to the crime. The same mouse also suggest they just not even show up, but the lawyer told them the prosecution had all ready gotten a subpoena, which meant they had to show up. The next day the mice learned the grand jury ruled the case was valid and the court date was set for the 23rd. Hopefully the petit jury would be more understanding of the mice. Especially since they had all ready said no to a plea bargain. They had all ready arraigned the mice, this court trial was moving quickly, but the mice wanted to get this over with quickly they needed to get back on the road to sell tooth brushes, they hoped the verdict would come soon. In the end, the judge finally decided to indict them of their crimes.
