Thursday'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 not going to lie, I reallllly like to gamble. Too much, probably. But hey, sometimes it is all worth it, like right now when I just won a $2,001 jackpot! W00t!! Just curious, but does it matter that, prior to hitting the jackpot, I had previously banned myself from the state's casinos under a Gaming Control Board self-help program?

Answer: Oh yes, it matters. Not only do you not get to keep the money, you will also likely face a criminal trespass charge. (Legal Juice, So I Can't Keep The $2,001 Jackpot I Won?)

2) Question: I'm drunk and the cops are following my car. Is it true that if I run into the forest and strip off my clothes that I will then "conceal my scent" so the K-9 dogs will not be able to find me?

Answer: That is not true. Sorry. (Jalopnik, This woman stripped to "conceal her scent" from K-9s after a DUI)

3) Question: Hey, I got that Ecko "rhino" tattoo so I can get the lifetime 20 percent discount but just realized that the offer was made on April Fool's Day. Am I stuck with this rhino and no discount?

Answer: No, you are in luck! That offer was no joke. (Consumerist, Ecko Is Totally, 100% Serious About The Discounts-For-Tattoos Deal)
