For all of you who hate lawyers, you can call them names in Germany.

It all started when a man was accused of misappropriating donation funds from a Berlin emergency help association for women. The prosecutor requested the court in Berlin for his arrest warrant, which did not sit well with his defense lawyer.

The legal eagle went on record and told the press how he felt about the prosecutor. "Mentally disturbed", "cuckoo" as well as "repulsive, malicious and simple-minded" were some of the gems.

Needless to say, the prosecutor did the lawyerly thing: he sued up to the Supreme Court, which ruled that words such as "cuckoo" are not slanderous.

A brewery worker at BrewDog decided to print a very unique date as the expiration date on their Punk IPA beers. Unfortunately, that date was a little too ambiguous to legally sell in the UK leading to the recall of around 200,000 beers. Don't worry though, the guy who did it was named employee of the month. 


Censorship of The Day: London Coffee Shop Forced to Replace Brilliant Yet "Offensive" Sign

A coffee shop in London has been forced to remove a sign displaying the shop's name from outside its building.

But the shop's response was rather cheeky.

The coffee shop was rebranded more than a year ago from the more boring "Bermondsey Street Coffee."

Then the owners received this letter this month from the lawyers of the owners of the building.

Seeing as they had no real choice in the matter, they replaced the sign.

Here's the new sign.

Effective? Yes.

Just as funny? Nah.
