1Ls-What's the dumbest thing that has been said in class so far?

I'll start with this pearl of wisdom from some idiot in my property class:

"Racism really doesn't exist anymore."

Please feel free to add on as it might provide a laugh.

From contracts class (Feige v. Boehm case)

Student: "A woman could have sex with 10,000 men and enter into contracts with all of them in good faith, it's like earthquake insurance"
Professor: "...It's not physically possible to have sex with 10,000 different men in that span of time"

Ranson v. Kitner

Prof. : "What was the offensive contact on the dog?"

Student: "You mean other than the bullet?"

(can't remember the case name; it was the one where the sailors were adrift in a lifeboat and they killed and ate one guy)

Prof:  do you think killing and eating the boy was justified?

student:  did they cook him?

How about this... Torts.

A girl's cell phone rings in class.

Prawf: I don't believe it. No cell phones in class. Turn them off.

One minute later, same girl's cell phone rings in class.

Prawf: I can't believe it!!! <Turns to the girl> What is that? Is that your cell phone?

Girl: No. It's my Blackberry.

Regina v. Dudley and Stevens.  I actually thought about that aspect of the case, too.  Ewwwww.

Criminy, where do I begin.

"So...why do we even have a Constitution?"

"I don't understand what due process has to do with personal jurisdiction?"

"I think there should be separate accomodations for people with disabilities."

That's just to start. I don't want to even get into the ridiculous garbage spewed our by our section gunners thus far.

ding!  that's right.

on further reflection, the comment is a bit witty, but i suspect it wasn't intended that way.

just wait until you get to Brown v. Board in Con Law, and your prof asks if, legally speaking, you think it was correctly decided.  can open, worms everywhere.  much ruffling of feathers.
