If you're gonna go Dead, go as a Fed.

One of the perks of my new job is the chance to order souvenir apparel embroidered with the Official Court Logo from a huge catalog about the size of ye olde Sears Christmas Wish Book. Along with all the usual logo clothing items such as performance fleece, golf shirts, henleys and ball caps, there are also chef's aprons...women's camis with spaghetti straps...and four, count 'em FOUR, styles of Tie-Dyed T-shirts. Man, the Federal Government has sure come a long way since Tom Wolfe wrote about Black Shiny Elevator Shoes. Kesey would be proud!

Alas, the catalog does not carry the one item I figured all the lawyers would buy: BRIEFS!! (OK, that was bad I know (Invalid for Obviousness, hehe)...the Pun Jar Penguin will probably swoop down and peck me to death for that 'un...)
