Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I was happily reading the book Fifty Shades of Grey when my boyfriend told me to stop because he believes the book is "pornography." I told him I'd read what I wanted to read, and he then squirted me in the face with some brown sauce to show me what "saucy" really meant. Can he do this?

Answer: Squirting someone with sauce is the crime of common assault in some places, so probably not. (The TelegraphBoyfriend squirted partner with brown sauce when she refused to stop reading Fifty Shades of Grey)

2) Question: Whoa -- I just came upon a massive melee in Ewing, N.J. About 200 people are fighting and rioting. What is going on here?!

Answer: Sounds like a bridal shower. (Times of TrentonEwing bridal shower ends in riot of more than 200 people)

3) Question: I'm relieved to learn that President Obama will pay my utility bills as part of a bailout plan if I simply register for the program and provide my personal and financial information. This is legit, right?

Answer: Sorry, but this is a scam. The president will not be paying your electric bill. (Dayton Daily NewsDon't fall for 'Obama will pay electric bill scam,' warns DP&L) (via The Consumerist)
