Thief’s rights – The inhabitants of a village want to eradicate theft and decide that every thief who gets caught will be punished by having his loot inserted into his behind. One day a thief is caught while running away with a bag full of coconuts and protests by claiming his human rights. When the sentence is to be applied, a new thief arrives with his loot: a wagon. This leads to a recasting of the legislation.
