Thanks to McClurg’s Legal Humor (Lawhaha) for bringing this one to the light of day. You can read his post about it, but you really have to read it in all its handwritten glory (complete with illustrations) to appreciate it.
Don’t worry, it’s only 8 pages long handwritten, and with the illustrations probably only a page worth of actual text. While it definitely is not an example of the professionalism or civility that an attorney should exhibit, it’s good for a laugh and a smile. Enjoy!
If you are ever in a stalemate with opposing counsel, you can try to break it the way United States District Judge Gregory A. Presnell did when he ordered the two attorneys to settle their differences with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. You can read more about Avista Management v.

What’s a blawg? A blawg is a legal blog. there are a few directories of blawgs including a directory from the ABA.
The first blawg everyone should be following is Law and the Multiverse. James Daily and Ryan Davidson look through the world of comics, sci fi, and other fiction to answer the legal issues presented. For example, see the post on alter egos. It’s a fun way to review legal issues and to see there are legal issues everywhere!
Second, a more serious blawg is Jotwell, where recently published law journal and law review articles are reviewed. A great place to start looking for recent articles in your ALWR topic area!
