    The CEO hired a new firm in an effort to cut costs.  For some reason, it wasn’t the ‘half-off’ he was expecting…

    That’s the last time we experiment with waterproof underwear liners in court.  Although we didn’t have to stop court to call a recess, we weren’t in fact, pissing IN our pants; instead, we were pissing all over our pants.  Now we have to stand out here for hours while our trousers are laundered and dried.  Ugh.

    And as quickly as it had begun, the panache of attempting to explore the juvenile humor of “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service . . . but what about pants?” was quickly lost when Jerry, Herman, Bernard, and Lenny were kicked off the bus on the way to lunch during a deposition.
