Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: We are about to pick the name for our company's new beer.  I see that our state has previously approved the names "Fat Bastard" for wine and "Raging Bitch" for beer, so we should be safe going with "Dirty Bastard" for our beer, right? 

Answer: No way, now you've crossed the line. That is profane. (FOX News, Alabama bans beer over dirty name)

2) Question: My buddies and I got drunk, broke into Sea World, swam with the dolphins and woke up the next morning to find a penguin in our room. We want to return the penguin but what charges might we face if we 'fess up?

Answer: You will likely be facing charges of trespassing and "stealing a protected animal." (Daily MailFriends 'broke into zoo, stripped to their underwear to swim with dolphins before stealing a penguin' on drunken night out)

3) Question: My wife says she is going to have me arrested for hurting her eye. I say that you cannot be arrested for throwing a box of Cheez-Its at someone. Who is right?

Answer: She is right. Hurled Cheez-It boxes can form the basis of a charge of assault. (Click Orlando, Police: Man attacked wife with Cheez-It snacks over Earth Day concert)
