A gingerbread strongman was sentenced to death on Sunday, for crimes against his own people.
The trial itself was beset by chaos from its earliest days. Judges were intimidated, lawyers shot and witnesses forced into hiding. The Gingerbread man himself repeatedly disrupted the trial and refused to recognize the court’s legitimacy.
Later he spoke of his preference for facing the gallows rather than a squad of greedy biscuit lovers. Hanging was the appropriate means of execution for a gingerbread man like himself, he said.
