Friday, in court, the Renaissance Man accidentally flipped the feathered friend at Judge Milo Ottenger, who quickly slapped him with a three-month sentence for contempt of court.
The Renaissance Man, who recently had his jaw operated on and could not speak, was trying to finger spell his name when asked, "What is your name?"
Witnesses say the judge entered the courtroom already in a bad mood because of his waking up late and his dog eating his breakfast. "The judge was madder than Hell. I knew the Renaissance man was a'goin straight into trouble," said Lenny Testigo, a floor mopper at the courthouse for over 20 years.
