Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

Dea 1) Question: Years and years of study to obtain my degree in Ebonics translation and now I can't get a job! Are there any opportunities in the legal field?

Answer: Why, yes! Try applying to the Department of Justice's Drug Enforcement Administration. (NPR, Speak Ebonics? The DEA Wants You) (via The Agitator)

2) Question: The woman at the deli counter asked me which chicken breasts I wanted in the case. I pointed out what I wanted and said "I like the large ones." Now I'm banned from Safeway?

Answer: Watch the double entendres. Safeway doesn't like them one bit. (Consumerist, Shopper: I Was Banned From Safeway Because I Asked For Large Chicken Breasts)

3) Question: I'm a juror in a trial. My hearing is perfect, but I must confess that the acoustics in the courtroom are so poor that my fellow jurors and I can't hear a damn thing anyone is saying -- not the lawyers, not the judge, and not the witnesses. What should we do?

Answer: Tell the judge -- it will likely result in a mistrial. (WLOX, Bad courtroom acoustics force mistrial; Lawyer demands change)
