A Coloring Book Only Lawyers Would Love

$5.95 at Borders. Now I know what to get him for his birthday.

Great LawyersNo lie, a coloring book of great lawyers. Hmmm . . . I'm trying to think of a child that would want to color a picture of William Jennings Bryant.

Maybe he plans on being a lawyer?

Chris said...

Too funny!

I just have one question, "Why is it so big?" There can't be that many great lawyers... Just kidding here.

Celeste said...

There are great lawyers?

Shoshana said...

To each his own! :)

Missy said...

Now that's funny. ;)

my4kids said...

I think they make at coloring book out of everything!

Miscellaneous-Mum said...

It's not often I'm speechless...but I honestly have no witty repartee for that. Now, if there was a colouring book of Boston Legal Lawyers, now THAT I'd understand....:)

whatever will they think of it next? ;-)

Hey, William Jennings Bryan was America's Loser Sweetheart for decades. I mean, my great grandpa JB and great uncle JB were named after him YEARS after he gave up running for president. And his "Cross of Gold"? Off base, but nice rhetoric.

Hm... that brings to mind another coloring book that (I hope) wouldn't do so well... "The Coloring Book of Unsuccessful Presidential Candidates."

That makes me wonder what other coloring books that company makes--I've seen their books before...Just not that one!

Dragonheart said...

A colouring book of lawyers? I guess they will publish anything! LOL! :D

scribbit said...

I thought it was so funny that I made him pose with it. He's afraid that people might think that "I'm so interested" face is for real :)

Hilarious! The world is amazing. The very existence of this coloring book is proof.

I've seen everything now!!

Still publishers - never fail to amaze - I guess.

Great photo too!!

Autofocused said...

A book for every taste....

Beckie said...

I guess the publishers believe, it's never too early to get them started! Great picture. Mine is up on My Photo Blog.

Your daughter would...She will be the lawyer when she grows up.

DebD said...

LOL! That is pretty funny.

Happy WW

I worked at Borders for 5 years. I used to laugh at some of the *interesting* stuff that would come through and wonder, 'who will want that?'.

You never know. If you stock it, they will come.

Isabelle aka Tricotine said...

mmmh... Maybe a great present for a Lawyer's child... (?) LOL

Happy WW!

Patty said...

Do you think people add horns to the figures' heads? A nice laugh. Thanks. I'll have to buy one and send it to my sister-the-lawyer for her birthday.

Sheila in Seattle said...

I saw that too! I thought it was hilarious as well.

Michelle said...

That's pretty funny!
Happy WW!

JAM said...

That's just TOO funny!

I'll bet that is a short book.

chelle said...

HAHAHA That is awesome!
I wonder if they have one for famous chemists?!?!?

Forget about a Lawyer Coloring Book, I've met a few smarmy lawyers in real life that made me want to scribble all over their face. With pointy colored pencils. Outside the lines. I can't be confined to boundaries set by pre-drawn printed pictures.

Happy WW!

sadly i know quite a few people who'd be interested in that. i'd buy it as a joke gift and they'd turn around and love it.

i know some odd people.

Babystepper said...

Makes you wonder. . . I bet he would've wanted one as a boy. Probably still does. I think you're right on with the birthday idea.

PunditMom said...

That is TOO funny. DH and I are both lawyers (tho' I don't practice anymore). Maybe this would be a good gift for an upcoming occasion!

so grateful to be Mormon! said...

i love that you picked this to highlight. too funny.

thanks for the laugh today.
