Previously silent male 1L: I think it is ridiculous that men should be held responsible for the irrational actions of any crazy woman they piss off.
Same Male 1L: The pimp wasn’t “beating” his ho; he was merely communicating his discontentment with the relationship. Perhaps a better way would have been for him to simply tell her that she had become a fat old skank and he wasn’t interested anymore.
At the beginning of class the following Monday:
Prof: Where’s Male 1L? Did the girls in class get to him over the weekend?

Contracts prof: The law school is fertile ground for hook-ups y'all... Once you graduate you won't have time to find someone... so you only have 2 1/2 years left!

2L girl: Crap. My boss at [Big Firm] just sent me an email. He's starting a summer softball league. I'm terrible at softball.
2L guy: So? Just don't play.
2L girl: Yeah...you don't understand how the big firms work. I'm going to the batting cages.

1L guy #1 shakes fist angrily.
1L guy #2: reading a Scalia opinion?
1L guy #1: No, Brennan.
1L guy #2: The problem is, Brennan's never met a rule he liked. No rules for him.
1L guy #1: Seriously. If Brennan was a chick, he'd put out on the first date.

Evidence Prof: So, would it be an excited utterance, for example, if you were on a bus and I just walked by and... just.... pinched your little buttocks?! What if I were an attractive woman? You'd probably like it!

Con Law prof: One of my early jobs was working for some magazines and I had to read Playgirl every month... One of the things I had to determine whether it was obscene was something called the "angle of the dangle."
