Could it be?!? Is it true?!? Who cares. This is the greatest contest ever in the history of the interwebz.
First prize is the official Gerry Spence fringed buckskin jacket, modeled here by the lovely SJ spokesmodel, Midday Cowboy. That’s right, fringes. Buckskin. Gerry Spence. Does it get any better? I think not.
And how can you win this fabulous prize?
Leave a comment telling your story of the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done in court. Your greatest screw-up. Your worst mistake. Your Rakofsky moment. The thing you did that humiliated you beyond repair.
But what if you’re not a lawyer and want to enter? No problemo! Tell us your most disgraceful moment as a defendant. Come on, we all know you did hard time. Don’t be shy. Or at least relative to criminal law or police interaction. If you got nothing, you don’t deserve the jacket. Just sayin’.
Law student? Need you ask? You’ve got stuff the rest of us can barely remember. Think of the future you’ll have with fringes on your bod.
As with all SJ contests, the rules are totally arbitrary and I will be the epistemic arbiter, so whatever I decide goes. You can enter as many times as you like, and pics could help. The contest will end at close of biz Friday, and winner will be announced
Saturday whenever I decide.
And whoever wins this jacket, need I explain, will never again lose a case,* because Gerry Spence.
Update: Kevin O’Keefe was kind enough to twit about this contest, but one response his twit received was just, well, perfect irony:
This could either be the single wussiest twit ever, or Machiavellian genius.
