Legal Humor Roundup for September 30, 2011


It’s not everyday that you sue Wal-Mart over two cents and win. Or find a story about mystery enemas. But that’s what we have today, plus an invisible and unstoppable man ends up in jail, climbing a tree to escape the police, and eighty vanity license plates rejected by Florida officials. It’s the happy hour law review for Friday, September 30, 2011.

1A woman in Pennsylvania successfully sued Wal-Mart for deceptive trade practices after Wal-Mart had overpriced her sausage. By two cents. The judge awarded $100 in damages, plus about $80 in court costs. We’re not sure if this was a contingency case. | Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

2Florida released a list of rejected vanity license plates, which include GR8NBED, BUTT RUB, IPASGAS, VIBRTOR, GANGMBR, MDL FNGT, PER VRT and eighty others that the Sun Sentinel turned into photo illustrations. | Sun Sentinel

3Not sure what the charge would be (trespass? assault?), but a man in California was the victim of an unwanted mystery enema. Lowering the Bar reports on Sonoma officials investigating a woman who showed up at a man’s home, said she was there for for his enema, and then departed after he had done the deuce. | Lowering the Bar

4Despite informing police that he was “invisible and unstoppable,” Utah police managed to see the invisible man long enough and muster enough force to stop him. He’s now in jail. | KSL.com

5Sometimes, to spare you from having to click through to the full story, we just give you the first sentence that sums it all up: “A man who climbed a tree in Tacoma while fleeing Washington State Patrol troopers came down this morning after nearly nine hours out on a limb.” | OregonLive.com

    A mystary Enema? #3 is funny, but I think a woman should NEVER let a man close enough to do any kind of thing to her bodice, or rear end either.

    That is how a girl can get into trouble, when a man says, lets just hold each other. My friend got pregnent that way. Fooey!

    Here is some new humour for you:

    Mulva was toweling off in front of the mirror when she noticed a few gray pubic hairs. She bent down and said to her privates… “I know you haven’t been getting much lately…but I didn’t know you were so worried about it!”
