A bit of humor

There were two "ladies" who, I believe, slept throughout most of the voir dire. Unbelievable! One lawyer asked 95% of the questions, the other had the chance to tend to any loose ends. Finally, the first lawyer returned to examine the two sleepyheads. The first was as defiant as she was inarticulate. It would have been humerous to watch her go off to the brig to cool her heels for a bit but alas, I think they are just glossing over it. The second was not as surly and tried to blame her work. I don't think she realized that her job can't hold this against her.

During the morning swearing in, the judge led in an oath that ended with "so help me God". He said they had another, irreligious version for anyone who wanted. "Anybody? Anybody?". No takers I thought it was a great way to shame any potential atheists.

There once were these two narcoleptics
With attitudes borderline septic
They slept through each question
And spoke with aggression
Of their acceptance in court I'm a skeptic.

Wow, there's no stopping The Neuf. It's like the Battle of Verdun...the limericks just keep on coming.

I think Nic's rhymes are terrific
They're witty and oddly specific
A man with some spunk
once said they were bunk
But Nic fed him a soporific

Wow, Nic, that's the best one yet!

My friend is a lymmricking nut.
Myself: sort of stuck in a rut.
He writes them with ease-
It's hard to believe!
He must pull them from out of his butt.
