Caption Contests

Last week, readers began submitting fun hashtags for the personally branded wine they’d like to see Biglaw firms handing out. We were inspired in all this by the ABA, who offered members a discount on slapping their firm label on a bottle of whatever wine they happen to be shilling.

It was a bold foray into a new medium for some, with several of you signing up to follow us on Twitter for the first time just to participate, which is awesome.

So let’s find out who wins….

On Friday, we asked readers to submit fun hashtags for the ABA’s commitment to provide its members with cheap wine. Or at least with cheap, personally branded wine to give clients eager to drink cut rate wine with the label of a cut rate law firm.

So some of you took to the Hashtag War format we modeled on @Midnight. Check out the finalists for this Hashtag War and see if you agree….

Happy Saints Cyril and Methodius Day! And I guess it’s St. Valentine’s Day if you’re not using the official Catholic calendar. If you’ve managed to secure freedom from the office at a reasonable hour tonight, you must have something romantic planned. And what could be more romantic for Valentine’s Day than a nice bottle of wine?

And while you’re brainstorming answers to that rhetorical question, will it help if I told you the wine was named after a law firm?

Because apparently that’s a thing….

Some say that the eyes are the window to the soul. I’d revise that slightly: a person’s books are the window to the soul.

You can tell a lot about a person from his or her bookshelf. Their intellect, their interests, their seriousness, their sense of humor — all can be revealed by bookcase contents. Who among us has not, while visiting the home of a potential love interest, surreptitiously (or openly) ogled the bookshelves?

This brings us to the photo for our latest caption contest:

Who doesn’t love a good typo? We certainly do here at Above the Law (which is why we make so many; we’re just trying to amuse you — and to test the proofreading skills of the commenters).

Typos can be quite funny, especially when committed by leading law firms. As long as they don’t hurt your clients by costing them millions, they generally amount to harmless fun.

Everyone knows that typos happen — like a certain other thing. Which brings us to today’s caption contest….
