Res Ipsa Loquitur

(this is a lawyer joke)

When someone is hit in the head by a three-pound, thrown, falling tortoise, who is responsible?

Film at 11.

(*Res Ipsa Loquitur--The Thing Speaks for Itself--is a legal doctrine where when something ridiculous occurs, resulting in injury, it's obviously SOMEBODY's fault, it's just a matter of finding out who: the classic example being a rolling barrel that rolls out of a warehouse and strikes a passerby.)
