From The DOJ For The Children

Ever mindful of the holiday season, the United States Department of Justice has created the perfect gift for good little boys and girls!  A book filled with cool puzzles, games and pictures to color.  And while having fun, fun, fun, they can learn a little about cool federal courts too!

On page 6, for example, the book offers this (click on image for a larger version):

DOJ p6-2

To make this fun for everyone, take a guess what goes in the blank space.  Answer after the jump!!!

DOJ p6-1

See? Not everyone who goes to court has broken a law or is in trouble. Only defendants!!! See how much you’ve learned already?!?

But while this book is jam-packed with cool fun and games, there is one thing you should know before stuffing stockings with the government gift: Coloring outside the lines is a violation of 18 U.S.C. §1001, punishable by up to five years in prison.  Guide your children accordingly.

    Am I correct in assuming that the penalties, including the five years in federal prison applicable under 18 USC § 1001, do not apply to members of said “executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States”? Otherwise, I have a new construction project in mind to stimulate our flagging economy.

    I like what it says on page 4: “You will find Federal Courts in big cities and in small towns, but most of the time you will find court in a Federal Court.”

    OMG OMG OMG!!! Those mindprobing Aliens who work for the NSA in cahoots with the US DoJ … They have stolen my dream and placed it on page 6.

    Oh and a whole bunch of solicitors, LEO’s, court staff (and probably magistrates/judges) in Sydney area are colouring in madly now ;)
