Q: What kind of man would commit armed robbery at a child’s birthday party?
A: One that looks like he’s half Shar-Pei!
Human Shar-Pei Rufus Gates, 17, of South Carolina, pleaded guilty to armed robbery and was sentenced to a maximum of five human years in prison.
According to reports, Rufus (he even has a dog’s name!) and another man, (species unknown), stormed into a child’s birthday party at a South Carolina hotel and forced the children and adults into a corner before demanding money.
Many legal pundits are predicting that Rufus’ attorney’s will appeal the sentence on the grounds that 35 dog years in prison is considered cruel and unusual punishment.
