Do People Still Have Those Fancy Pen Holders?


EES is a serious condition and today we see that it can be hereditary.



  1. Oh jeez, it’s worse than I imagined. Better get out the duct tape. (Cameo in Panel 1 by Gene from Bob’s Burgers.)

    Oh, I see what they did: Dennis & Lehane (g2design spotted it first). I’m not sure that ESQ works there.

  2. Dennis and Lehane? Really?

  3. Shep Trumbo, Doyle Dane, Matt “Hatt” Rogers, Knox Foley, Kemper Peake, Andrew Gregory, Jam-Jar Gaddis, Bobby Howry, Dory Darwin, Jarrod Hale, Wynn Wiley, Bobby Ottewill, and now Barry (D) Bader. All credit to Rubin for this, he’s good at writing obnoxious and irritating teenage boys.

  4. Forget Dustin Pedroia. This year belongs to Dennis & Lehane, the Shields and Yarnell of robotic lawyering.

  5. It’s ON! Vote for the best “disposal” of Papa & lil’ Meinhoff, Esq. using a plot device from D. Lehane. But not Mystic River; no one deserves that fate.

  6. Oops. My vote: Shutter Island for the both of them!

  7. Still no swirlie or jamming this kid into a locker? Bullying is frowned upon these days but this isn’t bullying. A lesson needs to be taught.

  8. Whenever I blow a .17 in a strange town, I call Harlan & Coben, the Sklar Brothers of procedural-themed law firms.

    Meanwhile, what are the odds we’ll find Young Bader stuffed into one of those lockers tomorrow?

  9. Law offices of Dennis and Lehane. Our motto: “We wish we had better news, but either way, we still get paid”.
    Del: “Can’t you do something? Get a continuance, or attach a lien to a tort, or whatever you people do?”
    Lawyer: “Mr. Bader, Clarence Darrow and Perry Mason put together couldn’t help you. When they took your blood sample, there was an olive floating in it. Your necktie blew a .12. If you had a recent hit movie, we might be able to find a doctor who’d swear you had a rare medical condition that caused your body to metabolize black coffee into Jack Daniels, but that’s about it”.
    Del: “Okay, then! Appear in a hit movie and find a lying doctor. Piece of cake!”

  10. Standing O, billy: “Rubin is good at writing obnoxious and irritating teenage boys.” And arrested development fathers– the golf cheater, Jungle Joe or whoever he was (the guy Gil finally challenged to a one on one) and, at least at first, Standish Sr. When “Gil Thorp: The Movie” is eventually produced, all of them will be played by Chelcie Ross, the gifted character actor who specializes in assholes (the obnoxious parent-coach in Hoosiers, the obnoxious born-again pitcher in Major League, etc.)

    Dennis Lehane? Crikey. Takes me back to my Boston days, when Mark Wahlberg (then known as Marky Mark, but we called him Dorky Dork) ruled Dorchester…

  11. Objection! “Esq.” is used as a suffix by an individual attorney, not by a law firm as an entity. PC, LLC, LLP, sure, but not Esq.
