Bart Simpson stands trial before Judge Burns in U.K. for illegal firearms possession

url-1This is a strange case of life imitating art – in a Warwick Crown Court in the U.K. this past week a man named Barton (Bart) Simpson was put on trial for carrying a .38 Smith and Wesson revolver in his luggage while boarding a plane.  The name of the judge in the case was Recorder Burns, aka Mr. Burns.

Mr. Burns sentenced Simpson to a 12-month community order with 140 hours of unpaid work and ordered him to pay £800 costs.

Bart Simpson is of course the main character in the long running Fox animated sitcom.  Mr. Burns is the evil town millionaire who owns the local nuclear power plant.  More on the story can be read over at The Daily Mail.
