Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: It's bad enough I'm headed into court now for my arraignment, but now I hear the prosecutor making fun of my name as "unfortunate," too? Do I need to stand for this?

Answer: Take the "sticks and stones" approach and don't worry about it. If it makes you feel any better, the same thing happened to the defendant today in USA v. Brotha Workitout. (The Daily Record, Brotha Workitout)

2) Question: I rented out my "Twister" game on Rentalic for $3.00/week. It came back with a big hole in one of the yellow circles. Unacceptable! What is my recourse?

Answer: Hopefully you demanded the security deposit on your Twister game. (Consumerist, Rent Out Your Household Items for Fun And Profit)

Oompa 3) Question: I've been cooped up all winter and I'm pale as a ghost. I need to get my tan on. I'm headed to the local tanning bed as soon as possible and I'm staying there until I look like an Oompa Loompa. Any advice?

Answer: Do it soon, before the "Tanning Bed Cancer Control Act" limits the amount of time the government will let you bake. (NBC New York, Pols Take Tanning to Task)
