Two weeks ago, we asked our readers to submit their entries for Above the Law’s “Lawyer Meme” contest.

This week, you voted on the finalists, and now it’s time to announce the winner….

We had a lot of complaints in the comments about the quality of the memes in the pool of finalists. To that, we say: if you think you can do better, try following the contest directions, and submit your entry to us properly. If it doesn’t get picked as a finalist, you can moan and groan. Until then, we suggest you STFU or GTFO.

That being said, here’s our winning “Lawyer Meme”:

And because we’re feeling a little like Cooley today, we won’t rank the rest of our finalists based on a “subjective” factor like “quality.” Since Cooley’s word is law, and bigger is better than smaller, isn’t it obvious that more frames per meme are better than fewer? That being said, here are the runners-up:


Thanks to everyone for submitting memes and for voting. If you created the winning meme or one of the runners-up, feel free to email us, subject line “Lawyer Meme Contest Winner,” to claim your prize (an Above the Law t-shirt).
