There Ought To Be A Law Against Stupid (Have I used this title before?)

Picture This…

Ø Girlfriend shoots Boyfriend in the chest.

Ø Boyfriend is dead.


Picture This…

Ø Girlfriend and Boyfriend want to make a YouTube Video.

Ø Their video will show Boyfriend holding a book in front of his chest and Girlfriend shooting at and hitting the book but not hurting the Boyfriend because the book stopped the bullet and then they can go out for Burgers and Fries.

Ø Girlfriend shoots and hits the book Boyfriend is holding in front of his chest but the book does not stop the bullet.

Ø Boyfriend is dead.

Ø Girlfriend is shocked and is not sure what she will tell her 2 children nor her next child because she is 7 months pregnant.


Enter the Lawyer…

Your Honor, this is clearly a case of Book Publisher Negligence because any Book Publisher who had the least bit of concern for its Buying Public would certainly have provided a Disclaimer in a prominent place (like the book cover) and in an attention getting color pattern (I would have recommended Day-Glow Orange) that would have warned the unsuspecting buying public that this book would not stop a bullet. (Yes, I know the prior sentence is too long but lawyers are known to do that.)


Enter the Judge…

Counselor, you have made a valid point. I am going to award this Formerly Pregnant Stupid Girlfriend Widow and her Offspring a whole bunch of money. We will reconvene at 9AM Monday when I will announce how much money it will be. This is going to take a while and I’m going to need my calculator for this one.


Would I kid u?
