Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three
burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the
1) Question: Years and years of study to obtain my degree in Ebonics translation and now I can't get a job! Are there any opportunities in the legal field?
Why, yes! Try applying to the Department of Justice's Drug Enforcement Administration. (NPR, Speak Ebonics? The DEA Wants You) (via The Agitator)
2) Question: The woman at the deli counter asked me which chicken breasts I wanted in the case. I pointed out what I wanted and said "I like the large ones." Now I'm banned from Safeway?
Answer: Watch the double entendres. Safeway doesn't like them one bit. (Consumerist, Shopper: I Was Banned From Safeway Because I Asked For Large Chicken Breasts)
3) Question: I'm a juror in a trial. My hearing is perfect, but I must confess that the acoustics in the courtroom are so poor that my fellow jurors and I can't hear a damn thing anyone is saying -- not the lawyers, not the judge, and not the witnesses. What should we do?
Answer: Tell the judge -- it will likely result in a mistrial. (WLOX, Bad courtroom acoustics force mistrial; Lawyer demands change)
