Putting the Verse in “Adverse Possession”

It’s that time of year, kids, when all good men come to the aid of keeping one another sane.  Here’s what has me going today:

The best Missed Connection ever:

I saw you in my bankruptcy class. I was so distracted by you that I could barely pay attention to the riveting lecture about the history of bankruptcy law. I imagine that you are a creditor and I am a bankrupt and I will have to work off my debt for you or risk debtor’s prison. You can have whatever you want; no state law exemptions. I want you to declare bankruptcy all over me.

I am sick of ending my nights pro se. I promise if you entertain my claim that you will have a huge judgment entered in your favor over and over again. We can even violate the Model Rule of Professional Responsibility and engage in a 108(j).

My interests include hilarious law-based puns; and mocking others. If you think we are a match, let’s grab a drink after class. I know it’s a weeknight but my parents let me stay out as late as I want to as long as I call by 11pm to check in with them.

P.S. I am neither the ginger nor the weird guy next to you.

xkcd does Le Petit Prince:

Your Christmas tree’s Twitter page.

A little bit of poetry, just for the hell of it:

Dear Harper Lib,
Coddle me while I outline
Over JT and Pollo Rico
You’ve got all that I seek, so –

Curled up on Tax notes
It’s to you that I totes
Come for peace and to hide
O beloved Harper Lib.
