WELL, HE PROBABLY CAME STRAIGHT FROM WORK

A man accused of drug trafficking showed up for court Friday in Fort Lauderdale sporting a jacket that bore a cartoon-style recipe for cooking crack cocaine.

He got it free when he signed a contract with his new bail bondsman.

A recipe for apple butter may have helped his case more. Just sayin.

Free Advertising! Heckuva deal!

I think I saw this one in a Richard Scarry book

Makes a " not guilty " plea a bit of a stretch.

"No, no! The judge'll LOVE it! It's, like, ironic!"

Forgot to read "Courtroom Attire for Dummies."

I hope no one tells Judi that Betsy broke the blog.

If the shirt doesn't fit, you must acquit?

You have the right to remain outlandishly stupid. Anything you wear can and will be held against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak to a designer. If you cannot afford a designer, one will be imposed on you. Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you? (Didn't think so).

Jimmy cook crack and I don't care

The judge sent him away

I heard that Martha Stewart wore a similar jacket to her first day on trial. Only hers had a little ticker-tape and stock symbols pattern. It was not a good thing.

Love it: "No, no! The judge'll LOVE it! It's, like, ironic!"

High-larious comments!

NC...psst: thanks for covering for me.

We lost a case against a teen-age thief who admitted stealing a gold ring from my daughter.
The girl admitted taking the ring but said she'd lost it later.
The Judge found her not guilty because, despite her admission, we couldn't prove she had prior intent to take it.
He did give her a talk about her INAPPROPRIATE t-shirt. It wasn't as nice as the one she wore at her LAST TRIAL. And she'd better wear something better NEXT TIME.
Bitter? Not really. We lost something (the ring was mine) worth a few hundred dollars. The girl was losing something much more precious.

Brilliant!
