Man Discovers His Inner Elf

What's the strangest aspect of this story? His defence argument, or the fact that two members of the jury apparently believed it?

A man who dressed up as Buho, a female elf, has been convicted by a jury at
Belfast Crown Court of taking underwear from a shop in a knifepoint raid.

Robert Boyd, 45, from Broadlands in Carrickfergus, held up staff at the
Orchid shop in Belfast disguised in a wig, hat and glasses.

Full story here.
