For those of you who may have missed it, check out Judge Martin Sheehan's decision in Kissel v Schwartz in Kentucky. The decision is extremely short and certainly worth a read for a quick dose of humor.
H/T to my colleague, Mike Benza!

Made my day! Thanks for the post!
Now if I can just work the opinion into my Secured Transactions syllabus ....

All right. I'm going to ask it. Putting aside general feelings about comedy in judicial opinions, how about specific reaction to the propriety of the topless bar/breastfeeding reference? In a wide universe of idioms, is that the best choice? Personally (and speaking as someone without experience in topless bars, but with experience breastfeeding in public), I was a bit, well, put off.

Jennifer: I see what you mean and I myself am a breastfeeding mother at the moment, but I wasn't offended by the reference. I can't really explain why. Something for me to think about. (In my case I suspect I'm just so sleep deprived that I find anything funny...)
