Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am getting my affairs in order before I go off to prison for a few years for insider trading. Any suggestions for what I should put on my "out-of-office" email auto-response under the circumstances?

Answer: How about something like "'(The owner of) this email address is currently at a re-education camp for the indeterminate future and (the email address) will not be checked. Please try back once (his) lesson has been learned." (Here is the City, One Of The Best Out-Of-Office Auto Responses Ever)

2) Question: I live in Munich. Almost every day I see one of my neighbors walk his dog, pick up his dog's poop and then place the dog poop in the mailbox. Unacceptable!! What should I do?

Answer: Call the post office immediately. You might be able to recover a 4000 euro reward and keep your mail clean. (TIME, The Mystery of the Smelly Letters: Who's Dumping Dog Poop into Munich's Mail?) (via Consumerist)

3) Question: I'd like to bequeath my entire estate of 10 million pounds to my cat when I die, making him the richest pet in the world. Am I allowed to do that?

Answer: Yes, you can do that. But FYI, 10 million pounds is only good enough to make your cat the third-richest pet in the world, behind a German shepherd named Gunter (90 million pounds) and a chimpanzee named Kalu (40 million pounds).
