You Be The Judge

We don't think this is legit, but who knows? Either way, this was too funny not to share with our readers.

Toronto, Canada (REUTERS) - A seven year old boy was at the centre of an Ontario courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Toronto Maple Leafs whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

The shorts totally clash with the tshirt. I mean, orange and tight with white/blue and baggy? Ick! (and I'm no fashionista.)

@habsfan10: I second that

Boys (and gals), I live in the Ottawa area and listen to Team1200, its totally legit. A bit dated (2-3 years old) but believe me its all real. Team1200 has some great anti-leaf/leaf sucks content on their site.

Also, the short shorts and underlying hosiery look Hooter-ish.

Haha great story. I'm a girl so I glanced at the tshirts, appreciated leaf-suckiness and scrolled down.

You know life is good when CBC decides not to broadcast the Leafs on a saturday night and the ROC (rest of Canada) is promoting Leafs Suck T-shirts.
