Top 3 Ways to Be Excused from Being a Trial Juror

Contributed by my friends and esteemed colleagues.
(See previous post)

1. Walk into courtroom with my own gavel
and sit there hugging it like the “Log Lady”
in Twin Peaks.

2. Point out to the Judge that I am on medication
and cannot be out on an all day pass. (half true)

And my personal favorite:

3. Walk into the courtroom dressed as Judge Judy.

Other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try bringing your recorder and humming "The Pink Panther", incessantly? I hear that works.

Wear a t-shirt emblazoned with a giant marajuana leaf and a Legalize Hemp NOW slogan?

Show up wearing a hangman's mask and carrying an ax?

Carry a bronze of the "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" monkees as a talisman?

when I went to Jury Duty, a guy who thought he was the next Rev Run rapped outside the courthouse while my car salesman, a hippie chick from my high school and myself waited to be let inside. i walked by a lingerie shop and read a whole book in a day. this all happened before the "joir de vive". i never actually got called in.

you should take it as a compliment.

actually, you should have said, "What do I know...I'm just a _______ ___ _______ _____ ____ _________!"
