The Day'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 in a Spanish prison. I already escaped once a month ago by having my wife fax a bogus piece of paper to the jail "ordering my release." Now I'm back in jail -- do you think a second faxed "order" by my wife will do the job again?

Answer: Of course! Stick with it. (AP, Spanish police arrest the fax escape man)

2) Question: Times are tough. Any ideas on how I can pay the mortgage this month?

Answer: Have you considered turning your entire home into a billboard for ad firm Adzookie? If you'll do that, they will cover your mortgage for you. You might want to check with your homeowners' association, though. (Consumerists, Would You Turn Your House Into A Billboard If The Advertiser Paid Your Mortgage?)

3) Question: My partner in crime and I are going old-school for the burglary we have planned -- no masks, just face paint. Awesome! Does it matter what kind of paint or ink we use?

Answer: If you think it through, you will see that this decision is actually quite important. Stay away from permanent markers -- they will blow your cover later. (Daily Times Herald, Black-faced suspects quickly apprehended) (via Legal Juice)
