Legal Humor Roundup for November 30, 2011


Today, on the eve of December, we’ve got the top ten items most at risk to be shoplifted during the holiday season. Plus, suing the Pope for failing to wear a seatbelt, Comedians-at-Law announces its Lawmageddon 2012 tour, and an insurer cries no fowl over a $1.2 million car that plunged into a lagoon. It’s the happy hour law review for Wednesday, November 30, 2011.

1Shoplifting is apparently up six percent from last year, and AdWeek has the top items that are most at risk to be shoplifted during the holiday season. No 1? Filet Mignon, known as a “luxury meat.” No 4? Axe Deodorant, which is applied to meat. | AdWeek

2Lowering the Bar has a story from Germany about a lawyer suing the Pope for seatbelt law violations associated with riding in the Pope Mobile. | Lowering the Bar

3Not so much a post but an announcement: Comedians-at-Law, which features comedian and Bottom Rung creator Matt Ritter, has announced its Lawmageddon 2012 comedy tour. We snagged a tour poster. | Lawmageddon 2012

4An insurer is calling the crash of a $1.2 million Bugatti Veyron EB fraud, thanks to a YouTube video and “a confidential informant.” The owner claims he swerved to avoid a seagull before plunging into a Galveston-area lagoon. | chron.com
