Legal Humor Roundup for October 24, 2011


As if you noticed, but we were out for most of last week. We’re now back tending bar again. And rounding up what we find for legal humor. Today, it’s Lowering the Bar’s “armadillo codes.” Plus, a man steals his own car, Bigfoot provides lessons in First Amendment rights, and waiting in line patiently to rob a Starbuck’s. It’s the happy hour law review for Monday, October 24, 2011.

1Earlier, Lowering the Bar brought us the injury codes for being struck by a turtle. But now it asks, what abouta a frozen armadillo? Because that’s what happened recently in Texas. | Lowering the Bar

2A man in Washington is accused of ramming a car through a gate and hitting three police cruisers and another car. Turns out he was trying to steal his own car—from the impound lot. | SeattlePI

3Legal Satyricon opines on the First Amendment right to perform as Bigfoot and “Boda the Blue Yoda” at Monadnock State Park in New Hampshire. In a rare feat, the legal pleadings are both humorous and informative. | Legal Satyricon

4Add “waiting in line” to the occupational hazards associated with armed robbery. Police in Los Angeles are searching for a man who robbed a Starbuck’s on Sunday after he patiently waited in line until it was his turn to order. | LA Times Blog

5Cracked.com has the 5 Criminals Who Pulled Off Major Crimes with Only a Phone, which includes escaping from prison, destroying a hotel, sending in a SWAT team, and interstate robbery. | Cracked.com

    Here is a funny bit of humour that I heard in the courthouse:

    Q. What’s the difference between a bankrupt attorney and a pigeon?
    A. The pigeon can still make a deposit on a Mercedes.
