  1. What shenanigans have we going on here in this legal batch; good grief! Number 4 down (by Zeis) is my favorite because I’m sure many judges, many a time, have wanted to do this to a witness but dare not, of course. In # 6 (by Chon Day) I’ve never heard of black opera hose and black striping accented with white piping before, have you?

    The man in #7 is just a month older than my dad. I’ll have to remember to use the 2nd part of that line if I get into a situation where it’s the best thing to say.
