Mommy works for a Judge and it was his turn to revoke people's probation for failing to pay court ordered restitution (whatever that means). This conversation REALLY happened:
Judge: Is there any reason you can think of that I should not send you to jail today? (probably rhetorical).
Idiot: I have a dog...[long pause]...and some kids.
The Judge is a dog person, so this appeal was actually a good, if ultimately unsuccessful one. But really, who can not be concerned about the well-being of an adorable animal with a face like this below.
This is me being cute.

PS- Daddy did not understand what was so funny and thought the idiot had raised a valid point. Mommy says that idiots think alike.
