Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My school newspaper ran an article about teens keeping quiet about having sexually transmitted diseases and, for no reason, used my photo with an X superimposed over my mouth as an illustration. What the heck!?! Now everyone is calling me "STD Boy," but I don't even have an STD! Can I sue?

Answer: Of course. You might try suing for "injury to your reputation" resulting in "shame, humiliation, mental anguish, and hurt feelings." (Miami NewTimesRonald Reagan High Student Sues After School Newspaper Used His Photo To Illustrate STD Story)

2) Question: I like to keep my money in my underwear or, occasionally, in my bra. It is still legal tender, right?

Answer: Technically, yes, but please be advised that some merchants no longer accept money out of undergarments. (Consumerist, This Seems Like A Perfectly Reasonable Policy To Us)

3) Question: Need a quick yes or no answer here, please don't judge me: If corporations are "people," then can buildings be people? Can I marry a building?  

Answer: Despite the video evidence below I'm still going with "NO." (Tosh.0 Blog, Seattle Woman Marries a Building)
