Gallows humour

In the comments section of a previous post, my friend Pat mentions that, should she ever get called to the Bench, she wanted a gallows. I think she should have one of these plunked on the bench instead.

If nothing else, it might make people think twice about giving you shit in the courtroom. Especially since when you flip the switch, the chair vibrates and the figures eyes light up. Oh, it also says "Is that the best you can do, you pansy?"

Wonderful stuff.

How would I know this? Because I own one, of course. Didn't make the trip to Iqaluit, alas. Cathy had...issues, with it. But it did wonders on my co-workers in Clarenville. I believe my former editor threatened to strap me to a chair herself if I kept it at work.

Never was sure if she was kidding...

Always wanted a Marv in the chair, but not likely to happen. It would be awkward to say the least in my office. And I have an impressionable child, who I've already had to explain that no daddy isn't killing people when he plays a game he's knocking them out cause killing is bad.

What game are you playing? Not something like Doom, are you?

And how does she feel about not being able to play with Daddy's dolls?

Lately Laura Croft, or Godfather for xbox. Godfather was usually on after she had gone to bed and she late snuck down. She's always allowed to play with Daddy's action figures as he doesn't have dolls.

I would definitely have one of those on the bench if I was a judge. This is why I will never be a judge.

I seem to recall seeing Marv on your desk at The Packet.
