I Laughed While Reading, Part VI of III

If Life Were Like
Middle School
JUDGE: In all my years on the bench, I have never seen a more despicable criminal. You robbed, assaulted, and tortured the victim simply for the thrill of it. Do you have anything to say in your defense before I sentence you?
CRIMINAL: Nope.
JUDGE: In that case, I hereby sentence you to forty years in a maximum security prison. I also sentence the victim to forty years in prison.
VICTIM: Wait— what? That doesn't make any sense! He attacked me!
JUDGE: I don't care who started it.
