  • Check out this article, if only for the gratuitous barb about Pittsburgh attorneys (the old Rust-Belt-Loosening stereotype, I presume).

  1. There are many fat bloated lawyers. They miss very few meals. They attend many free buffet political dinners. They sit in their lounge chairs at night and watch TV. They sit most of the day. They do no heavy lifting. Their staffs do most of their work. You will note the pelican chins that hang from their fat bloated jowls. They do no exercise. They present themselves as big and strong and rugged. In fact, they are fat, weak, slow, and bloated.
