As if you noticed, but we were out for most of last week. We’re now back tending bar again. And rounding up what we find for legal humor. Today, it’s Lowering the Bar’s “armadillo codes.” Plus, a man steals his own car, Bigfoot provides lessons in First Amendment rights, and waiting in line patiently to rob a Starbuck’s. It’s the happy hour law review for Monday, October 24, 2011.
