I was walking the dog...you know the crazy one which nips at your heels :)
02-26-2012, 08:42 PM
I was walking the man, you know, the one who looked like a fire hydrant.

03-29-2012, 06:04 AM
I can't because I'm on a restraining order.
03-29-2012, 06:31 AM
I can't because there are warrants out for my arrest.
03-31-2012, 12:37 PM
What makes you think you're entitled to the truth?
03-31-2012, 01:24 PM
I was on my way to jury duty and I'll be damned if I wasn't accosted by pack of roving mimes who whisked me away to involuntary mime camp. Cruel bastards
03-31-2012, 05:18 PM
I was on the job down in the coal mines, and there was a cave-in.

Fujimoto and I were learning how to pour a perfect tree on our lattes...lost track of time
03-31-2012, 07:43 PM
I was too dumb to understand Moxiie's advanced techniques. She had to do it over and over and over again.
03-31-2012, 08:23 PM

I was handcuffed to my bed at the time.
04-02-2012, 07:27 AM
I was flipping burgers to feed the masses and prevent anarchy, so summoning me is advocating societal collapse.
04-02-2012, 10:14 AM
I was under the influence of an imperius curse.
04-05-2012, 02:01 AM
I had amnesia yesterday.

I was chained to a chair by my kidnappers and was in the middle of my grand escape, at which point I blew up the building with a massive explosion and tracked down the enemy boss and killed him as revenge for having taken the life of my mentor.
04-12-2012, 08:20 AM
The judge is my illegitimate lovechild.
04-12-2012, 09:40 AM
I am in love with the defendant.
All of the defendants.

I don't want to sneeze at trial. I'm allergic to my snot.
04-12-2012, 09:45 AM
The chairs aren't very comfortable.
04-12-2012, 10:00 AM
I am extremely biased to the thing that sets the defendant apart from other people. Nothing? Does he wear glasses? Then I am biased against glasses.
04-12-2012, 10:02 AM
My favorite pants were in the wash.

Do you have any idea how many better things I have to do?
04-12-2012, 10:26 AM
Jury duty? Ohhh, I thought you said JERRY duty. I was wondering why they wouldn't let me backstage on Springer!
04-12-2012, 10:30 AM
I've got a string on my back that, when pulled, makes me say, "Guilty, guilty, guilty." Incidentally, the string also makes me say, "Wrong cord, baby."
04-12-2012, 10:33 AM
I am not a real person. You see, I am a fictional persona created by the government so they can send their spies on missions using it.
04-12-2012, 10:34 AM
I've got a craving for mahogany furniture.

I've been hypnotized to go on a random murdering spree every time I hear a gavel.

A guy wanted to talk to me about my vote.

The line for gasoline was so long, I could only afford enough gasoline to drive back to the end of the line again.
04-16-2012, 11:48 AM
04-16-2012, 01:21 PM
I think I'm funny. Gets me in trouble so you might consider my absence as a way of preventing needless extra cases.
04-16-2012, 01:25 PM
Do you have any idea how bad jurror #4 smells?
04-16-2012, 01:57 PM
I forgot which pedal was the brake.
04-16-2012, 01:59 PM
I thought I had the winning ticket in the lottery, so I drove to the state capital. Turns out I didn't have a single number. Now which one is the killer?

I forgot to let the Laquer dry before I sat in the chair.
04-16-2012, 05:53 PM
Well, I'm kinda big. I guess I could do it if you sent a crane and a flatbed truck.
04-16-2012, 05:59 PM

The victim is underage and I'm a pedophile, so I'm biased.

I cannot attend jury duty because I absolutely must win this debate on INTJf.
04-18-2012, 10:57 AM
I thought I was off the hook after I blew you.
04-18-2012, 11:36 AM
I had violent diarrhea, see these photos?
04-18-2012, 12:18 PM
Our system is flawed and I can not and will not acknowledge it.
04-19-2012, 04:52 AM
Everyone is guilty of something. Can't you just send this guy to the chair on your own and leave me out of it?
04-19-2012, 06:54 AM
Your honor, what is justice? If you force me to attend against my will, are you no better than that accused rapist?
04-19-2012, 01:38 PM
Juror #8 keeps trying to touch me inappropriately.
04-21-2012, 07:16 PM
Because all the jurors have been abducted by the body snatchers, and replaced with exact duplicates where half of them always tell a lie, and the other half always tell the truth, but we don't know which ones are which!

The court didn't have valet parking.
04-23-2012, 07:21 PM
I was on the way to court, but then I saw a car drive by.
Looking at its rear window I could see an entire family.
They looked white, malnurished and retarded.
Then blood shot out of my nose.
The last thing I remember thinking before I slipped into a coma, was "why would anyone purchase those stupid stick figure family stickers?"
04-24-2012, 10:40 AM
I accidentally ran over the neighbor's autistic kid.

I have transcended the need to participate in society.
04-30-2012, 04:43 AM
But I did show up for jury duty. You must have amnesia.
04-30-2012, 12:25 PM
Because you'll pay me for my service, but you'll pay me in the american dollar, which is legal tender and backed by nothing, and is essentially a fiat currency which is unconstitutional.
i just cut off my own ear. gosh, what are the odds of that.
04-30-2012, 12:34 PM
I got ass-raped by a politicial, he used a pen.
05-05-2012, 05:46 AM
That's a metaphor, it means he signed a bill that is screwing all of us.
