I've got the Jury Duty tomorrow.
I will of course perform my civic duty to the best of my natural ability. That is to say, I will show up.
But as an enthusiastic and experienced sinner, I am deeply reluctant to sit in judgment of my fellow man. I understand there are strategies to, how you say, avoid being chosen for a jury (and thus get released from the Courthouse with perhaps something of the day to spare). I suppose I could show up dressed as Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lim-bus- stop-F'tang-F'tang-Olé-Biscuitbarrel of the Silly Party and announce to a breathless courtroom that I'm a pinko atheist sheepfucker, but I would imagine there are less wardrobe-intensive tactics.
Any of you lawyer types got better suggestions?
