The National Association of Trial Lawyers has suggested a new legal plea: temporary stupidity.
“Temporary stupidity is easier to prove than temporary insanity,” a spokesperson said. “It wouldn’t require testimony by psychiatric experts. And jurors are more likely to be sympathetic – because, let’s face it, who among us hasn’t done something boneheaded once in a while?”
Legal experts speculate that celebrity doofuses such as Anthony Weiner and Ryan Braun could invoke the temporary stupidity defense, but only by establishing that “temporary” extends to periods of several years.
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
