Ten town criers from around the world Took part in the dunking of a young wench (this is what you get for gossiping!) They where in Bermuda to determine who among them is the best and the loudest, and help celebrate Bermuda's 400th anniversary

"In the common law of crime in England and Wales, a common scold was a species of public nuisance—a troublesome and angry woman who broke the public peace by habitually arguing and quarrelling with her neighbours. The Latin name for the offender, communis rixatrix, appears in the feminine gender, and makes it clear that only women could commit this crime.
The offense, which was exported to North America with the colonists, was punishable by dunking: being placed in a chair and submerged in a river or pond. Although rarely prosecuted, it was officially abolished in England and Wales in 1967. The 1967 Act also finally abolished the other rarely prosecuted offenses of champerty, challenging to fight, eavesdropping, being a common barrator and of being a common night walker. Since it applies only to women, it is invalid in the United States as it runs contrary to the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution."
