Roughneck

lawyer in ascot

A Milwaukee-area judge has gotten hot under the collar due to a prosecutor’s wearing an ascot in lieu of a court-mandated necktie.  While the judge might be extreme in threatening the lawyer with contempt, his Honor is correct that an ascot must be seen as an informal piece of clothing.   While donning one in court might not amount to a full-blown violation of the canons of legal ethics, the real question is why the prosecutor would want to accentuate the girth of his already hefty neck.   His goatee was a smart choice, however.

    Perhaps, he can’t find a shirt that will actually close. I’m sure when he ties the tie, he’s lucky if the tip reaches his belly button. I do like the look on him, though.

    Clearly he went for the ascot because he can’t button the collar of that shirt.

    Thanks, grrg, for “bloatee,” a much-needed word.

    I think he carries off the Ascot rather well.

    Grrg, I’m going to try and use the word ‘bloatee’ today, it deserves a wider audience.
