“I can haz the exemption?”

East Boston feline Sal Esposito has been called up for jury duty. Apparently Mr Esposito’s habit of whizzing in his neighbor’s yard and bringing home dead mice isn’t dissuading the authorities from wanting him to perform his civic duty.

How could something this crazy happen? Well, it seems that on the last census Mr Esposito’s owners listed him as a pet, but somewhere along the line the bureaucrats forgot he wasn’t human. His owners tried to get him excused by pointing out that Sal can’t speak English, but the jury commissioner wasn’t buying it so Sal is still expected in court on March 23!
