I might make a T-shirt.

I guess law school hasn’t stolen all of my sense from me yet, because my first thought was that peacocks are male, and therefore don’t lay eggs. The one with the witness mouthing off to the judge made me laugh, too.

Though I think it involved a pink gorilla chasing after a hapless camp counselor, who could never finish his assigned chore because he was running away from the gorilla (and hence was relegated to doing only the truly lowly dirty work around camp, like scrubbing toilets and unstopping shower drains). The tale was dragged out forever and a day, with the same ending of “tag! you’re it!”.
