Caption This! (August 24, 2012)

What in the Bitter Lawyer is going on here?

Put your lawyerly wisdom to the test and post a comment below or on Facebook with a witty, hilarious, or brilliant caption to this clever comic, courtesy of And keep it clean(ish) and, y’know, respectful.

The editors’ pick will be announced next week, and then we’ll post the clip art with the text on Facebook.

Last Week’s Winner

Ed Phillips submitted last week’s Caption This! winning entry on Facebook with “We are putting you on notice that we intend to call a rebuttal witness should your client insist on maintaining the defense that ‘The devil made him do it.’ Kindly be guided accordingly.” (Yes, we slightly modified it slightly to fit.) Great job Ed — and everyone else who submitted captions!

Thanks for all the submissions and keep them coming, here or on Facebook.
