A Day of Indecency: Somebody get Michael Powell over here and quick...

Today has been a shameful day for morals and decency. Superbowl Nipplegate has NOTHING on what Sections 5 and 6 had to endure over the last few days. After a weekend hearing about permanent erections and rectal exams in CivPro Purgatory Review, we had to discuss some dirty, dirty cases today in Con Law.

First, the Cohen case. This man had a jacket on that said “Fuck the Draft.” Our Prof actually said “fuck” in class. Like a lot.

THEN, we had to listen to George Carlin’s monologue about banned words, being forced to hear the words Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits over and over and over again. Our Prof even tried to hook the computer up to the A/V system so the whole school would be forced to listen to them’ fighting words. In case you missed that: Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits.

Other words that came up included buttock, pubic, and breast, all when discussing adult theatres and strip clubs. SHAME AND HORROR. And I thought this was a Jesuit Institution.

TO TOP THIS ALL OFF, I have come across the following flashcard in the Law in a Flash Contracts Series. Do you HAVE to become a major perv when you become a legal academic? Apparently. Sad part is, I don't even know the answer.

John Smith is holding a stag party for a buddy, and he hires Pocahontas to perform cartwheels, in the nude, at the bash. The party is set for October 15, with Pocahontas to be paid $250 after her performance. She calls Smith, September 15, and announces she has retired and will not perform at his party. Must Smith wait until October 15 to file for breach of contract?
