Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Finally I'm out of prison! I need a beer to celebrate but I'm broke. Whatever -- I'm grabbing a beer in this convenience store and I'll pay them later. What's the worst that could happen?

Beware "Celebration Fail." This could become a vicious cycle. (Fail Blog, Celebration Fail)

Celebration fail

2) Question: I'm a former federal prosecutor and now head up an association dedicated to citizen ethics and responsibility. Thirty-three pounds of marijuana in a large FedEx package was just unexpectedly delivered to my doorstep. What should I do with it?

Answer: Call the cops. And heads-up for the person who was expecting that shipment! (Main Justice, Marijuana Shipment Arrives Unexpectedly on D.C. Doorstep)

3) Question: I'm lying here in my hospital bed trying to get a little sleep. Then my daughter comes in, I open my eyes to say hi, and she starts screaming bloody murder. What gives?

Answer: Sometimes hospitals accidentally tell your loved ones that you are dead. Then when they come to retrieve your belongings, they really are not expecting you to open your eyes and turn your head. (CBS News, NY Family Outraged Over Hospital Identity Mix-Up)
