So we barely raise an eyebrow when we hear of the goings on in a Florida courthouse.

In an effort to illustrate the innocence of his client, one Michael Chartrand, lawyer Jeffrey Kaufman dressed up as Tigger. Kauffman’s aim was to prove that the costume affords only limited movement and vision to the wearer.

And his plan worked, since he was able to convince a jury that Chartrand – who wears the costume as part of his job as a Walt Disney World – could not have fondled a 13-year-old girls while posing for a photograph with her and her mother.’
