If you ever make it to the headlines of Fark.com, chances are you’re a more likely candidate for the Darwin Awards than a Nobel Prize. The folks in the stories listed at the user-submitted, news-aggregating site, for the most part, fell out of their family trees and are people you hope never reproduce - or at least do so somewhere other than America - much less practice law. As such, you’re never going to find a law student in the lineup.
That’s right. Sometimes the “leaders of tomorrow” end up as the Fark headlines of today. Here’s a list, from the least to the most egregious displays of “Dude! Get out of my future profession!” behavior out there.
