Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm at Starbucks. All I want is a plain bagel. Period. But that stupid barista won't serve me a plain bagel unless I specifically utter the words, "no butter or cheese." Why? Why?

Answer: Sometimes at Starbucks the barista will yell, "You're not going to get anything unless you say butter or cheese" and then call the police on non-compliant customers. That happens. Say what they want you to say or face the consequences. (Consumerist, English Professor: I Was Booted From Starbucks Over Bagel Linguistics)

2) Question: Is it my imagination or did someone Photoshop a can of pepper spray and a badge into Will Ferrell's hands in place of guns in "The Other Guys" movie poster?

Answer: You must be in San Francisco. No poster guns allowed. (SF Weekly, 'The Other Guys' Movie Poster Disarmed By Muni)


3) Question: I'm disabled and pretty much broke. Any chance I can get the government to agree to pay for prostitutes and lap dances for me?

Answer: Do you live in the U.K.? If so, and if it will help your "mental and physical well being," that should be no problem. (Telegraph, Councils pay for prostitutes for the disabled)
