Seinfeld Law School

Maybe the reason that I like Seinfeld so much is the every day nature of the show's humor. The show's routine works so well because it takes our nuances, formalities, and fads and pits them front and center for castigation. It lets us know that, no matter how normal we seem, we are all ridiculous in our own special way. Watching Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer wage psychological war for an entire episode while they wait for a table at a Chinese restaurant or look for their car in a parking lot is funny.

We've all been there. But, we all haven't been to law school.

Some of the things I've seen and heard around these halls can keep me laughing minutes, hours, and days after taking place. I've listed a fewrandom ones below. Names have been omitted to protect the innocent.

1. 1L Salsa Queen highlighting her textbook using rulers to ensure complete perfection.
2. 1L Hypothetical Fiend posing a single analogy involving a costume party, a murder out of mistaken duress, and a subsequent surgery lacking informed consent. Wow.
3. 1L Econ Deity suggesting that if pregnancy may fatally exacerbate an existing condition, that having sex may be a form of contributory negligence.
4. 1L JCrew Midwest opining that German luxury cars are crap, Grey Goose is mediocre, and Polo is shoddy quality. But, that Bud Light is the finest beer available.
5. 1L Saudi Norwegian declaring that pregnant women should not be allowed in public.
6. 1L Former-Big-10-Defensive-Back wearing an XXXL bright pink sweatshirt...without having lost a bet.
7. 1L Best Dressed telling me that I can dance "pretty well for a white guy."
8. 2L Femme Fatale claiming that a weekly grouping of steak eating guys was an unofficial sexist fraternity. Really.
9. 1L Southern Techie remarking that 1L Hypothetical Fiend needs "to be put to death."
10. 1L Blog Writing Yankee Fan sings Red Sox fan favorite "Sweet Caroline" at karaoke bar.

I just want to point out that I am opposed to the death penalty in all other circumstances. Period....But alas, this singular death is just a necessary evil.
