The Bumble Defense: Man Claims Prostitute Transformed Into Donkey During Sexual Encounter

A court in Zimbabwe had a true Mr. Bumble moment when a man accused of sex with a donkey mounted a unique defense: Sunday Moyo insisted that he had hired a prostitute and she transformed into a donkey during the sexual encounter.

Sunday Moyo, 28, said he paid the prostitute $20, but that the woman had turned into a donkey halfway through intercourse. He was spotted having sex with the animal in his backyard by a passing police unit.

In court, Moyo insisted “Your worship, I only came to know that I was being intimate with a donkey when I got arrested. I had hired a prostitute and paid US$20 for the service at Down Town nightclub, and I don’t know how she then became a donkey.” The court, which broke into laughter, appears to take a “never on Sunday” view of the matter.

It was a perfect modern use of the Bumble defense. If you recall in Oliver Twist (Chapter 51), Mr. Bumble tried to blame his wife but was told that he could not shift responsibility:

“It was all Mrs. Bumble. She would do it,” urged Mr. Bumble, first looking round to ascertain that his partner had left the room.

“That is no excuse,” replied Mr. Brownlow. “You were present on the occasion of the destruction of these trinkets, and indeed are the more guilty of the two; for the law supposes that your wife acts under your direction.”

“If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble,… “the law is a ass—a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is that his eye may be opened by experience—by experience.”

In this case, the defense was that not just the law but the victim is an ass.

  1. Too bad he wasn’t in the U.S. — as this blog attests, we have any number of folks in our courts who regularly and with great ease turn themselves into asses.

    But even greater magic is found in our highest court: those guys can turn incorporeal entities into people with Constitutional rights! Probably because our highest court is frequented by body snatchers — just compare a S. Ct. jurist’s actions with his words as a nominee. Repeat the magical incantation — like an oath of office — and presto change-o, a different creature.

  2. Sounds like a story Ryan The Cold would tell the Queen, or a story the 1% might tell about the booty of Iraq.

    I was screwing the Iraqis our of their oil when the Donkeys were voted in, now I am screwing the Donkeys for all its worth.

    The law has some good ass if you are the 1% in America the BootyFull.

  3. AY, I think you’re hilarious but I don’t get it!

    Now I don’t know if you mean my joke was bad or yours was.

    I’ll give you $20 if you’ll explain this all to me.

  4. raff,

    He found a magic lantern, rubbed it and wished for a piece of ass…..Allah….Provides…

  5. Malisha,

    Truth and a lie in the same breath….Lie to me…tell me the truth….

  6. One wonders if the fellow had a run-in with a neoCon propagandist since they blame everything on the Donkeys, not the Elephants.

  7. I’m not too surprised – I have seen many men turn themselves into an ass while trying to fins a partner for sex.

  8. Sounds similar to what I experience on this blog at times … initially a poster appears to be reasonable and then magically turns into a troll.

  9. Well actually I believe the defendant; I have felt myself turn into a donkey myself, in the midst of an “encounter” with a man such as himself.
