Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My neighbor is trying to get me put in jail for laughing at his daughter. First of all, it wasn't a laugh, it was a smile, so I don't know what he's complaining about. But is this a real crime?

It could be if you are under a court order forbidding you from "laughing at anyone." (Times Online: Don't laugh at my daughter)

2) Question: I think this legal argument is a bit of a stretch, but I I'll give it a shot. I mean, what's the worst thing that the judge can do here?

Answer: The court could decide to reject the motion on the grounds that it “is so incredibly asinine, ill-conceived, unfounded and personally and professionally insulting that it is unworthy of any discussion or consideration.” (The Briefcase: A Goal for Aspiring Lawyers)

Cow 3) Question: We have a large cow on our farm. When we squeeze its udder, milk comes out. Can we sell this stuff? 

Answer: Sure, if you want to go to jail. (Nobody's Business: Udderly Mad)
