    Judging by the positioning of the plaintiff’s pupils, I’m guessing his attorney will be able to develop a pretty good theory of the case. Unless this turtle is about to kill the spiky-haired gentleman to the left of the frame, it would be just plain silly to invoke res ipsa loquiturtle.

    That said, Mr. Mills, I thoroughly appreciated your pun, and I hope you do not take my proposed minor amendments as an insult to your talent as a wordsmith.

    Warm regards,

    Jason Engelhart

    Absent some form of negligence, plaintiff will not typically be struck in the head by a turtle…

    I think it would have been better had it been a pet shop, or a turtle breeding facility, and no one was at the window. (Like the flour bag case…) The person at the window implies negligence on the part of the person…

    I dunno, I think the turtle should be talking. After all, res ipsa loquiturtle means “the turtle thing speaks for itself,” right? But seriously, Dave: love your strips. I read them every day!

    This is great! Made me laugh out loud (even throughout the day).

    I just discovered “Courtoons.” Also cracked up at “Supra Man” and “Supremacy Claus.” As a former law review person, I also love the “citation” gyrations!

    I’ll be checking these every day. Thanks again!

    That’s what Aeschylus thought, too.

  13. Stacy Says:

    …so that turtle would actually be a TORTLE, right?

    Sorry. I had to.

    It was actually be “The thing turtle-speaks for itself”
