Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Facebook has declared me deceased. And yet here I am breathing and typing this question to you. How do I get my status back to "alive?"

Answer: Answer: You make a compelling case for being alive. But once Facebook declares you dead, you pretty much stay dead. (Consumerist, Once Facebook Thinks You're Dead, You're Dead Forever)

2) Question:  Cocoa Pebbles is running an ad featuring a cartoon guy who looks just like me getting his ass kicked by Bam Bam, a prehistoric toddler. Do I have a case? 

Answer: Hulk Hogan? Is that you? I thought that "Hulk Boulder" character looked like you, too! Go get 'em, brother! (Digital Journal, Hulk Hogan sues Post Cereal over Cocoa Pebbles commercial)

3) Question: Times are tough. Why should I keep paying my electric bill when I can easily just attach a cable to a meat hook, toss it onto an overhead power line, and then siphon power to my nearby home.

Answer: For starters, it is illegal and "it will kill you." (Reuters, Man steals electricity with meat hook) (via Legal Juice)
