Hip-Hoppin' in Hijab

4:20 PM -- If you're going to hide an MP3 player under your hijab, you should probably get some wireless headphones:

    Britain's top lawyer decided on Thursday that no action would be taken against a Muslim woman accused of listening to an MP3 music player under her hijab while on jury duty.

    The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was thrown off the jury considering a murder trial when one of her fellow jurors reported seeing headphone wires coming out of her headscarf.

"Fellow juror" was presumably once "hall monitor."

    Attorney General Baroness Patricia Scotland had "carefully" considered the case and decided not to press criminal charges, saying it would be too difficult to prove if the woman was guilty, a spokeswoman for her office said.

Translation: "I'm just too lazy to pursue this..."

    The suspected incident had occurred during a trial in June at London's Blackfriars Court of a man accused of bludgeoning his wife to death.

"Oh how droll... Guess I'll throw on the latest track from Fergie..."
