Legal Humor Roundup for December 5, 2011

Happy Repeal Day, folks, otherwise known as the day we finally neutralized the phrase “beverage purposes” in the U.S. Constitution. In today’s legal humor, we have a Vermont man fighting for the trademark rights of kale. Plus, Justice Scalia recuses himself from a capital murder case, stealing toilet paper from a diner, and breaking into banks legally and then telling about it. It’s the happy hour law review for Monday, December 5, 2011.
