Here's a phrase you don't hear every day!

Occasionally Jan will do the "Other News" stories and have to preface them with a "note content" warning.  That of course means it might be offensive to some people.  The story this morning was one of those but it had in it a line that you just don't hear everyday:  "he was caught performing a sex act under a juggler's hat."  How can you not be intrigued??  Here's the whole story courtesy of ABC News.  (NOTE CONTENT)

Little person actor Nicholas Read is in big trouble. Read -- who played an Ewok in Return of the Jedi and has appeared in movies like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone -- is facing jail time after being caught a second time for flashing young women on trains.

Britain's The Sun reports Read, 41, admitted in court to recently showing off to a schoolgirl and snapping her friend's "horrified reaction." Because this was his second such offense, he's facing 20 months in jail, a judge told him last week.

Read, who stands four foot five, had been handed a suspended sentence in 2010 after he was caught performing a sex act under a juggler's hat for 30 minutes as he sat next to a schoolgirl on a train from London to Leicester.

The actor, who is on a sex offender registry, has other sexually-based offenses on his record, Judge Roger Thomas noted in court; he set Read's sentencing for July 13. The actor is forbidden from riding the train until then, unless he's going to court or to see his attorney.
