(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?

ROFLMFAO! That is the funniest *&^%! :p
"It's not whether Iran likes carrots," he said. "Iran likes carrots. Iran demands carrots! If there is to be a solution in Iran, carrots must be part of the solution! We don't expect others to cook carrots for us then present them and then tell us, 'Eat them or else.' We can cook our own carrots!"

Property I

Professor: So, in dealing with the open and hostile requirement and the running of the statute of limitations in this case, the Plaintiffs were frightened to confront their relative, and instead chose to await his death before staking a claim to the farm.

Student A: Wouldn't waiting be justified in this case, perhaps tolling the S.O.L.?

Professor: Not necessarily, and in this case, the court decided not.

Student B (overtly gay): That's screwed up!

Professor: thank you for your candid opinion, Student B. Perhaps you would confront your own parents then in such a situation?

Student B: Oh, no...

Professor: no? why not?

Student B: Oh, they're just dirty, dirty people!

;)

Torts - can't remember the case name

student:  "The key to this false imprisonment case is how long it took P to figure out they were being held captive"
prof:     "That's irrelevent to this case since P became aware at some point while she was still captive, and then had to
           find a way to escape captivity"
student:  "No, the main point is still how long it took her to realize she was being held."



... At this point the professor looked like he wanted to kill the guy

Discussion of Alabama Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress case where Sears customer service employee said to coworker (while customer is on phone and can hear him), "this guy is more queer than a 3 dollar bill"


Professor: what is the tort here?

Student: Being gay in Alabama

Not gunner-esque, but hilarious

Here's a good one....

In Torts Class:

Girl raises her hand: "This may sound stupid, but one of my friends told me that Illinois is getting rid of common law"

Professor:  "Remember when we were talking about half full and full cups...well, your friend's cup is full all right...full of you know what"

Not dumb, and not 1L, but worthy of a post:

Corporations Prof - "and here we see a good policy situation for the ol' Learned Hand Job."

It has already become legendary.
