The American Bar Association has formed a special commission to deal with “dumbass legal questions” frequently asked by pundits, radio talk show hosts, and the public, saying “the time has come to deal with this pestilence head on.”
ABA officials were quick to clarify that it was “purely coincidental” that the commission’s formation occurred during the same time a dumbass questioned whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States.
“The ABA is dealing with dumbass legal questions, not dumbass questions or dumbasses generally,” said a spokesperson. “Though we are considering the question of whether Hawaii is legally a state as a question potentially within the commission’s charge. That and whether federal courts are only courts of admiralty, which we get a lot.”
