Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I'm a federal judge. Do I really need to adjudicate a copyright infringement case about a cartoon character who sings a song called, "What What (In the Butt)”?  This is what it has come to for me? Really??

Answer: Yes, really, your Honor.  (Entertainment Law Matters, Did South Park Episode Infringe “What What (In the Butt)”?)

 2) Question: Our national water polo team is trying to get ready for our match in the Asian Games. Why do I have 50 voicemails from the Information Ministry of our country?

Answer: Perhaps your government objects to the white crescent moon from your country's flag jutting up from the groin area of your bathing suits? (AP, Singapore Government: Polo Team's Trunks "Inappropriate")

3) Question: I'd like the lawyers in my firm to submit their timesheets on a more timely basis. I'm thinking about hitting the send button on an angry email that threatens to put all offenders names in a hat, randomly pick out a name and publicly fire one unlucky person on the spot. Should I go for it?

Answer: Don't do it!  (Above the Law, Akin Gump Partner Pens Email Fantasy About Firing Delinquent Time Keepers)
