ANYTHING described as totally legal is always the wrong thing to do, it has emerged.
Researchers highlighted tax avoidance schemes, sex with 16-year-olds and killing a Scotsman with a bow and arrow in York as examples of legal yet highly dubious behaviour.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: There is this weird category of things which the law reckons are fine but on consideration you have to say ‘Fuck the law, you shouldn’t be doing that.’
In each case the person suggesting the wrong action will casually emphasise how it is ‘totally legal’. That is your trigger phrase, where you know you are being presented with a clear choice between good or evil.”
26-year-old Tom Booker said: We were going on holiday to America so we had the cat put down to save paying for a boarding kennel. Totally legal.
I know it is wrong, but that is not the point. You don’t go to prison just for doing something wrong.”
