This just in from the BBC:
A Philippines judge who said he consulted imaginary mystic dwarves has failed to convince the Supreme Court to allow him to keep his job.
Florentino Floro was appealing against a three-year inquiry which led to his removal due to incompetence and bias. He told investigators three mystic dwarves - Armand, Luis and Angel - had helped him to carry out healing sessions during breaks in his chambers. The court said psychic phenomena had no place in the judiciary.
The bench backed a medical finding that the judge was suffering from psychosis. The Manila trial judge had asked the Supreme Court to dismiss the complaint and return him to the bench, after being sacked in April.
"They should not have dismissed me for what I believed," Mr Floro told reporters after filing his appeal in May... However, the Supreme Court said dalliance with dwarves would gradually erode the public's acceptance of the judiciary as the guardian of the law, if not make it an object of ridicule.
The judge left the hearing and drove his SmartCar to his tiny home in the country. He passed his prize plantings - a dwarf pine, a mound of minature Helleborus and a Giant Sequoia stunted from lack of fog - on the way to his front door. Once inside his house, he fed his minature Schnauzer, petted his dwarf French bulldog and scooped up his fuzzy dwarf bunny. He walked over to a small door off his living room, opened it and ducked through.
Setting the bunny down to hop around the 18" high replica of Stonehenge, he took a moment to mist three bonsai trees near the round window. Then he sat and waited. And waited. After some time, he remembered it was Wednesday, so he changed into a blue robe. Soon, he heard a tinkling hum in the distance and Armand, Luis and Angel were simply there for him, as they always were.
"We did it!" he exclaimed. "My name and yours are now immortal! The only problem is that they are calling me delusional."
"Delusional is not unusual" replied Armand.
"Better unusual than delusional" said Luis.
And Angel, the scamp, just smiled and said, "They're not delusions; they're illusions."
Then the three went skipping around the Stonehenge model. The judge smiled.
