2L #2: Yeah, that's just how they are out there. When you live on the I-95 corridor you've got to be ready to stick and move to get yours.

HEARD IN CLASS: The Phoenix is requesting submissions for
Professor quotes heard in class. Did Helmholz say something
hysterical? Did Judge Posner let out a pithy diatribe
against the world, the 9th Circuit, or cat haters? Do you
have some vintage Sunstein quotes from last quarter?
Let's share: send professor quotes to XXXXXXXX@uchicago.edu
The Phoenix Board

Civil Procedure Professor: "Don't kick a baby elephant, and don't abuse a clerk. Just don't."
-- Overheard by HLJ

- “All of us ‘originalists’ seem to go back to the language of the Constitution when it suits our purposes.”
- “Can they look in the film canister on the desk during a protective sweep? No. Sometimes there’s just film in there anyway... As Freud says, sometimes a film canister is just a film canister."
- “If the crazy killer brother-in-law is in the attic, they’re gonna fuckin’ hear him coming before he gets there and have a reasonable reason to go search the house!
- “I get a letter with a return address of Osama bin Laden… I wonder if he has mailing labels?”

2L #2: Hmmm. Then maybe you should just fall down on purpose on the wayfrom the car to the door so you get it out of the way.
-- Overheard by LB
K Prof (discussing a Tennessee case): The 16 year old defendant did not repair the truck and let the engine blow up. Then he left it parked for months on his parent's front lawn... reinforcing every stereotype of Tennesee you've ever had.
-- Overheard by BD
-- Overheard by CT
Property professor passing out an evaluation form regarding classes for this week and realizing he doesn't have enough copies: "Like Ohio voting ballots, not enough for everyone. That was not a political statement."
-- Overheard by GR1L: What does a purple mohawk and a leather jacket really say, anyway?
Property prof: I wish I knew.
-- Overheard by K
Property Professor: Why do we have deeds?
1L: It's more convenient than throwing clumps of dirt at each other (referring to livery of seisen).
-- Overheard by Kitrah
Property Professor: None of us are asking for in-depth research to answer these problems. Only psycho professors at the top law schools ask for those things, and even then…
