Fucking lawyers - by FELIX

Anyone who reads the Egotist regularly should know I'm a grumpy old fuck. But man, the lawyers are killing my ads. When I look back on the golden age of advertising, and some classic ads like Think Small or We Try Harder, I shed a tear. Not just because they're great, but because they're not crammed with 18 lines of 8pt legal bullshit. No one reads this shit anyway, it's all just CYA. Can you see just how badly the message of VW would have been tainted by all that legal bullshit. And who knows what they'd have done to the copy, or even the headline. IS this the world we've created? If it is, we suck.

On the one hand I'm with you 100%. On the other you've got people treating lawsuits like they were Powerball scratch tickets. It's hard to blame a company for trying to cover their ass when the country is saturated with a sense of financial entitlement.

Yeah...it sucks. But, the bigger the client the more of a target they are.

But, actually fucking lawyers? I guess it would be ok if she was hot and loaded, and could get you out of dui's, mip's, or posession. Actually, fucking a lawyer sounds pretty AWESOME!

Puntastic. Well, most lawyers I deal with look more like Matlock, so I'll pass thanks. But keep on dreaming Jack.
