lol @ “eat shit, Bob.”

I wonder if Oliver had a hand in this.

At least this isn’t a case of a rich guy suing a poor guy. In Idaho we have a litigious rich guy who wins even if he loses because regular people use up all of their resources defending themselves.I think he was Romney’s campaign finance guy.


#4

Bob, you are an asshole of all assholes.


#5

It’s official, i’v read a legal document, I am now a lowur


#6

This is glorious.


#7

OH you missed it - it was epic. Hold on I’ll get the video.

ETA

Objection, your honour. Brief repeatedly misuses the phrase “begs the question” and is therefore inadmissable.


#9

Looks like a shit-eating grin to me.


#10

I thought you could sue anyone for any reason. You just might not win.

#12

And finally, grow the f*ck up, Bob, you’re acting like a spoiled brat. You’re as bad as our President.


#13

Worth it for Mr Nutter-Butter.


#14

I’m guessing amicus briefs aren’t usually written in that conversational style, with “_____ , Bob” at the end of the lines.

Great tactic though, it basically refers back to “Eat shit, Bob” in tone every time it appears.

#16

More research is required.


#17

In all seriousness, doesn’t it look like he suffers from fetal alcohol syndrome?


#18

I prefer the illustration taken directly from the brief:


#19

The preceding argument is priceless:

And with regard to the Dr. Evil remark, it should be remembered that truth is an absolute defense to a claim of defamation


#20

According to the Required Disclosures statement (Section I on page 1): no. But they seem to have the style down.

Footnote 3: “Everyone is allowed to have dreams.”
