[Comic for Wednesday, July 20, 2005]


Mercedes: The counsel for the plaintiff readily admits the vast majority of the defendant's remarks in the blog are opinion or hyperbole and therefore cannot be considered defamatory.

Mercedes: However, there are several remarks highlighted for the court that call into question the plaintiff's competence in the workplace. But most damaging is the last one, that the plaintiff is a "homicidal maniac."

Mercedes: Mr. Terrell, out of curiosity, ARE you a homicidal maniac?
Trent: Absolutely not! That's completely absurd! I've never murdered anyone!
Mercedes: Yet the defendant claims you are. How can we explain this?

Trent: Obviously, it misinterpreted my innocent pranks as "death threats." Which they certainly were not. I never intended to do any sort of lasting harm to anyone.
