Hammurabi's Laws Violated
One of Hammurabi's Laws states, “If fire break out in a house, and some one who comes to put it out cast his eye upon the property of the owner of the house, and take the property of the master of the house, he shall be thrown into that self-same fire.”
Yesterday, Kunha Bahooka, a fireman, violated this law of Hammurabi. After a fire broke out in Alfonzo Cucu’s house, he rushed to the scene and attempted to put out the fire, but was spotted leaving the house with his neighbor’s most prized possession: his vintage, one-of-a-kind rubber duck. Servants of King Hammurabi seized Bahooka his ears and threw him into the fire. The fire was eventually put out and Cucu’s possession was returned to him.
