Official Political Humor Thread

rayzac 2,010 October 20, 2006 at 08:38 AM
Since politics and humor do not always mix, yet the lounge is a little touchy about such topics, this will be the official thread in the Podium to post humor items (jokes, cartoons, blogs, etc). Anything that is overly offensive will still be moderated according to the rules and we will enforce the "No complaining about politics" rule more closely here.

Because of the volitile nature of the Podium, this thread will be limited to posts on humor content and debating will not be allowed in this thread. We will use the spamming and/or trolling if you choose to debate in here.

System Notice: This thread has been automatically renewed after reaching a post limit. Most of its content has been moved to this thread for reference purposes.

A court prosecutor makes a motion for the defendant's lawyer ("Captain Justice") to not refer to him as "the government," apparently thinking it was a derogatory term.
Response-to-Government-Moving-to-Ban-the-Word-Government [scribd.com]

Short version:
Quote :
Should this Court disagree, and feel inclined to let the parties basically pick their own designations and ban words, then the defense has a few additional suggestions.... First, the Defendant no longer wants to be called "the Defendant." This rather archaic term of art obviously has a fairly negative connotation.... At trial, Mr. P. hereby demands to be addressed only by his full name, preceded by the title "Mister."

Alternatively, he may be called simply "the Citizen Accused." This latter title sounds more respectable than the criminal "Defendant." The designation "That innocent man" would also be acceptable.

Moreover, defense counsel does not wish to be referred to as a "lawyer," or a "defense attorney." Rather, counsel for the Citizen Accused should be referred to primarily as the "Defender of the Innocent." This title seems particularly appropriate, because every Citizen Accused is presumed innocent.

Alternatively, counsel would also accept the designation "Guardian of the Realm."

Further, the Citizen Accused humbly requests an appropriate military title for his own representative, to match that of the opposing counsel. Whenever addressed by name, the name "Captain Justice" will be appropriate.

Along these same lines, even the term "defense" does not sound very likeable. ...the opposition to the Plaintiff hereby names itself "the Resistance."

WHEREFORE, Captain Justice, Guardian of the Realm and Leader of the Resistance, primarily asks that the Court deny the State’s motion, as lacking legal basis. Alternatively, the Citizen Accused moves for an order in limine modifying the speech code as aforementioned, and requiring any other euphemisms and feel-good terms as the Court finds appropriate.
