Yeah, I tried to get out of jury duty, too

Boston resident Sal Esposito recently got called in for jury duty. He might have some problems performing this required task, though, as Sal is a cat. The problem arose after owners Anna and Guy Esposito listed him on the last U.S. Census under "pet." Anna filed for his disqualification of service. He was not "too old," "ill," or a "convicted felon," so she filed that he "cannot speak English." The jury commissioner denied this request. Source Note: cat in photo is NOT Sal Esposito.

Oops I typo'd pretty badly on my last one so I deleted it. Anyway, it's true, they don't have a choice for "I am not human."

I would have shown up to court w the cat! BUT why did he show up in the system? Somebody registered him, voted or something!
