Australian court rings to the sound of satisfaction

Female orgasm calls for reply

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

A visitor to Australia's Ipswich Magistrates court was seen desperately scrabbling for his phone as it moaned in satisfaction on receipt of a call, according to reports from Ananova.

The tone apparently expressed its unmitigated pleasure for more than 20 seconds, surely long enough for any woman, though perhaps not long enough to get to the phone. Lawyers and other visitors tried to keep a straight face and the magistrate, one Roger Stark, gamely tried to ignore the interruption.

According to reports the chap was lucky to avoid a contempt charge, which could have cost him six months in chokey, though spending the rest of his life explaining why he was sent down would probably be worse than the jail time itself. ®
