Legal Humor Roundup for November 17, 2011


This just in. Missouri town fires the Sugar Plum Fairy for potty-mouth while going potty. Plus, a grandma with an “iron-like grip” pins down a robbery suspect by his balls, what not to wear for your DUI mugshot, and a growing cash-for-quizzes scandal envelopes a Florida high school. It’s the happy hour law review for Thursday, November 17, 2011.

1An ongoing grades-for-money scandal is rocking the town of Punta Gorda, Florida, with good grades on high school quizzes going for $40, or “two 20.00 dollar bills [paper-clipped] to the quiz.” | WINK News

2In the story most likely to get Guano Dubango to comment, a “65-year-old woman with an iron-like grip” in Ghana captured a potential robber by pinning the suspect down by his balls. The other suspect, identified as “Lucky,” managed to escape. | GhanaWeb

3Question for an evidentiary expert in a DUI case. Can you keep the booking photo of the suspect out of evidence? I mean, well, because he’s wearing a t-shirt that says “I’m a Drunk.” | New York Post

4For this one, we link to the “Mascot Law” tag used by Lowering the Bar, as Kevin Underhill has two breaking stories involving the termination of the Sugar Plum Fairy for cursing during a required drug test. What? Just read it on LTB. | Lowering the Bar
