Lake Superior State Unicorn Hunting Regulations

By: Omar Ha-Redeye · December 31, 2012 · Filed Under Humour · Comment 

Lake Superior State University apparently has a sense of humour. On the school’s website you can find an interesting regulation relating to an endangered species on campus:

 

Unicorn Hunting Regulations

The following regulations will be enforced by the Wildebeastle (Mythical) Division of the Department of Natural Unicorns of the Unicorn Hunters of Lake Superior State University:

A licence for hunting unicorns is also available for download on the school’s website. The unicorn hunts often occur in conjunction with the school’s snowman burnings.

We’ve checked, and Lake Superior State does not have a law school unfortunately. There is a promising pre-law program though for students interested in what is certainly a distinctive post-secondary institution.

By: Omar Ha-Redeye · September 7, 2012 · Filed Under Humour · 2 Comments 

Bob Kohn, a lawyer and businessperson from New York, filed an amicus brief in the antitrust case against Apple by the American government.

When the judge limited his submissions to five pages he adopted an unusual approach – and filed a graphic novel instead. The graphics begin on page 3 below, after the cover page and table of authorities.

Law School Drop Out Pens Best Rejection Response – Ever

By: Contributor · August 10, 2012 · Filed Under Humour · 1 Comment 

When the San Diego Padres sent law school dropout Taylor Grey Meyer a rejection letter, after she applied to the team over 30 times, here’s what she had to say:

Hi [Redacted],

I wanted to thank you for reaching out to me when thinking of ways to meet your quota for the Sports Sales Combine.

After careful review I must decline. I realize I may be burning a bridge here, but in the spirit of reciprocity, I would like to extend you a counter-offer to suck my dick. Clearly, I don’t have one of these, so my offer makes about as much sense as yours. But for the price you’re charging to attend the event, I’m sure I would have no problem borrowing one.

Managers like you have found this to be the most authentic training available. Real, hands-on experience getting you on your way to perfecting the techniques you will need to climb the corporate ladder. In these tough economic times, it’s always good to widen your skill set.

Let’s talk about why I wasn’t a good fit with your organization. Was it my extensive education that made me less of a fit, that now paying $500 will allow me to overcome? My graduate work in sports commerce? Being a law student, working toward becoming an agent? Was it my past experience overseeing the execution of national and international events? Wait, I know, maybe it was my previous internship with Major League Soccer, and that I actually got my “start” in professional sports at the age of 15 when I volunteered at a minor league ballpark in my hometown. And given all that, I chose to apply with the Padres, at least 30 times since moving to San Diego. Persevering through countless anonymous email rejections, I continued to submit my resume despite never even being granted the courtesy of a face-to-face interview. All for the joy of making $30K a year. Maybe you’re right. Maybe I’m not the best fit for your company. But here’s a nice fit, my foot in your ass.

All the best,

Taylor
