Legal Humor Roundup for November 3, 2011


We’ve all been there. The client from hell who wants to first-chair the trial instead of being the client. If you haven’t been there, then the Namby Pamby has a quick profile. Plus, suing your wedding photographer to recreate your wedding, what not to post on your Facebook page, and how to get caught stealing a cell phone. It’s the happy hour law review for Thursday, November 3, 2011.

1Pro tip: if you are allegedly in possession of child pornography and are also on probation for manufacturing meth, don’t post the following on your Facebook page: “Has any1 else eva thought bout strappin a bomb on n walk n a police department n blowin da fuck up.” | al.com

2You may have seen this already, but it’s worth reporting again. A begrudged groom is suing his wedding photographer in part for missing “the last dance and the bouquet toss.” In addition to a straightforward breach of contract claim, he’s demanding $48,000 to “recreate the entire wedding and fly the principals to New York so the celebration can be re-shot by another photographer.” Thing is, the wedding was in 2003. And the couple is now divorced. And the bride, um, divorcee, is now living in Latvia. Ces’t la loi. | New York Times

3Not gonna be a lawyer. A man was in the middle of denying knowledge of a stolen cellphone before it rang in his pocket, according to police in Hoboken, New Jersey. | nj.com

4If your client starts with the phrase “Finally, I want to direct your attention to the decisions of the Illinois Supreme Court,” then just file the Notice of Withdrawal when you get off the phone. But not if you are Namby Pamby, cuz then we wouldn’t get to laugh along the way. | The Namby Pamby

    There certainly are a lot of strange rangers out there! If I can find a very attractive law bride, I would be happy to pay a photographer to take pictures!

    To date, I have only had a few women signify their interest via making sexual advances, and, for the most part, nearly all have been water buffalos.

    I have respectfully declined said advances.
