I Bet This Guy Is Pretty Funny

Being a wiseguy on a standard questionnaire for potential jurors earned a man a night in jail this week. Asked if had ever fired a weapon, Benjamin Ratliffe wrote, "Yes. I killed someone with it, of course. Right." Any serious health problems? "I’ve got a bad jonesin’ for heroin. Really I do," he wrote. "Massive amounts of lithium are needed for me to focus. That and Coke." (Story) "I got a bad jonesin'" may become my new catch phrase.
