Turn Your Simpsons Phone Off.. In Court

Simpsons News — Posted 17 Jul, 2003 by Scott

Of all the embarrassing places where a mobile phone can ring, a coroner's court must be on a par with a funeral.Inquests are often emotionally charged, as tearful bereaved relatives answer questions about the deceased from a coroner whose duty is to establish the cause of death. When the theme tune from The Simpsons suddenly clangs through the courtroom, people involved in the inquest can react with anger, red faces, tears or sometimes even laughter.
Dewi Pritchard-Jones, coroner for North-west Wales, has seen this happen too many times.In one recent inquest, he warned that if proceedings were interrupted once more by a ring tone, the phone's owner would be ordered to pay £25 to charity. Read it at the ic Wales website.

Riiiiiiiiiiiing!
