    Thanks to PETA, the annual Christmas parade just wasn’t the same after Santa replaced his eight tiny reindeer with eight tiny lawyers.

    Best prank ever! I love watching the first year associates squirm when we ask why they didn’t comply with firm dress code.

    Sunglasses, $15. Black shoes, $99. Dark suit, $155. An entire street full of calculating lawyers, priceless.

    Anticipating a shortage of able-bodied minions, following a recent wave of rioting by law students against the US News – Law School Complex, several leading firms are in the early stages of planning, in collaboration with Sony, to replace a percentage of new associates with the Certified Associate Robotic Professional, shown here.

    This first batch of CARPs is being evaluated for its capacity to shirk public interest, maintain composure in the face of adversity, and appear both firm and professional in courtroom attire. Developers note that several units were modeled after current members of the United States Supreme Court.
