    4th Amendment?!?  You better not be making this up, counselor, or I will have your ass!  Is that Old Testament or New Testament?  We only do King James in this courtroom–none of that papist hogwash!

    I don’t care if his hands are cuffed behind his back.  He’s not allowed to walk around with his zipper open tantalizing the lady jurors!

    Thank god this judge is as clueless as the editor at Bitter Lawyer picking the caption winners, or else I would be going to jail for life.

    Finally the bitter lawyer editor got one right!  Alma is a troll of epic proportions.  This is exactly what I expected in my head.  Alma is a bald-as-a-mug dude!!!

    You boys are retarded.  You will NEVER get it, will you? Well one thing is for sure; you will never get any women to respect you, so be prepared to hold your own weenies forever.

    Don’t look at me!  I didn’t fart.  Remember, Judges’ shit don’t stink, so it can’t be me!

    By entering this guilty plea, you understand that you will be remanded to the state penitentiary where you will serve hard time.  When I say ahrd time, imagine your cell mate, you get my meaning?
