send lawyers, guns and a happymeal

Where are the riveting courtroom drama movies of years past?

"Presumed Innocent" 
"Erin Brockovich"  
"A Few Good Men"
"Kramer vs. Kramer" 
"Runaway Jury"

Alright, the last one was never made into a movie. 
Years ago during some random clicking and link following I stumbled upon the Happymeal-gate

Happymeal-gate - are we ever going to get past the watergate thing?

Short story (a brief?) - Hot shot Chicago lawyer told a judge that she was

"a few French Fries short of a Happy Meal"

and he almost lost his license in that court. He was dropped by the client and probably (I'm guessing) a few fries short on his year-end bonus.

Hmm - wonder if he had used "a few clowns short of a circus" instead perhaps the judge would have let it go?

This could be a new version of that Warren Zevon song.

Send lawyers guns and a happymeal,
the Big Mac about to hit the fan.

Ah, a court room where issues are resolved. Life should be as easy as a judge's can be.

Being a judge seems like a great career move but getting to that point is tough work - don't you think?

It reminds me of when my daughter was little I'd pass her back her Happy meal without the fries for years she was clueless it came with fries...all the while I ate them! But hey she got to keep the toy!

You know I think that line could be set to music. Nothing like a good muffin.

judges are sooooo sensitive

You might be right but I certainly would not want to upset a judge. Like tugging on Superman's cape.

Seems ill-advised to insult a judge in any way.
