AG (you know, our editor) sent me this story with the kind words of "this seems like it's up your alley" attached. And the prick is right, this story is right up my alley. But only because I have an intense interest in the Nigerian Thespian community. Not because actor Baba Suwe had to take 25 fiery sh*ts just to be freed from prison. That's disgusting and I'm not even a little curious if any of his sh*t had undigested bits of food in it. Like say, portabella mushrooms or the crowd favorite, pine nuts.
According to Yahoo:
A leading Nigerian comic actor arrested on suspicion of ingesting drugs to smuggle to Europe was on Friday freed on bail after 25 closely monitored bowel movements produced nothing suspicious.
Babatunde Omidina, known by his stage name Baba Suwe, was arrested last month at Lagos's international airport where he had been due to take a flight to France.
But after 24 days in detention during which his bowel movements were earnestly followed by authorities and the media, an apologetic High Court judge in Lagos ordered his release.
Omidina was detained on October 12 as he was about to board an Air France flight to Paris. The drug enforcement agency said he had "allegedly tested positive to drug ingestion."
"There have been several examinations carried out on him and no banned substances have so far been found," his lawyer Bamidele Aturu told the court on Friday.
"He has excreted more than 25 times," he later told AFP.
Nigeria -- surprise, surprise -- is a f*cked up place where you are guilty until proven innocent. Baba Suwe got to see that first hand and now he's a victim of both the courts and his own a**hole, which, thanks to it's sluggish ways, kept him imprisoned him for almost a month. Kind of unfair that no one stepped in with a laxative or thirty. Poor guy is a once-a-day shitter. Too bad he doesn't take after my best friend JB. That bastard ceremoniously empties his a**hole after every meal. If Baba did that, he'd have been out in the matter of 4 days.
