I am such a glutton for punishment. Last week I wrote about the furries, and now I’m speaking at a furry convention next week. My Twitter feed has been taken over by animals. Someone’s making a fucking fursuit. This is my life now. Seriously. This is my life now.
But it got me thinking: maybe I should make this a thing? I’m already locked into giving the furries (who are great fucking people by the way) one post a month focusing specifically on their legal issues, which we will call “Furry Friday” and will be doing on the last Friday of each month. Why not dive into some other shit on Fridays that nobody else in the blawgosphere is really talking about?
Hence what I am now calling “Fetish Friday,” the first installment of which is today and which will continue until morale improves in general. Third Friday of every month…which is today. And today, today I want to talk about something I read about on Twitter:
Master Slave Contracts. Because I fucking love contracts, and the fact these fucking things exist just blew my tiny little mind right the fuck away.
So, that said, let’s chat.

HEY! So, there were a lot of great suggestions for posts yesterday from my newly found technicolor zoo of friendly animal-people, but I woke up this morning and thought to myself: “Am I gonna listen to these assholes? I don’t even let other lawyers suggest what the fuck I’m going to write about!”
So today, I’m writing for all the people out there, you sweet little clueless shits, that have decided they may want to be lawyers. I plan on making this a continuing series, by the way, because there’s a lot to be said to the dumbasses that feel the need to become attorneys.

Alright, so first thing’s first:
Posting schedule is changing. Originally I was posting 3 a week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I’m switching this up to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It’s just easier to have a day or two between posts. This doesn’t mean there won’t be posts on topical shit when it happens, there will, but this is the new general schedule.
That said, here’s Junior Brown with a little music for you.
Before we jump into today’s post, I want to touch on a few things that seem to have occurred over the weekend. Over the past week, I’ve been subjected to conversations with the dregs of humanity. These are people with absolutely no moral fiber, no education, and no future. I can’t believe how many of them have retweeted me since Friday evening, and frankly I’m ashamed that they follow me.
I’m speaking, of course, of Ohioans (What? What did you think I was talking about? Bigot…).
A second order of business before I go into today’s topic is a disclaimer: I’M NOT A FUCKING TAX LAWYER. There is a very specific sub-set of very boring attorneys that handle things like “tax codes” and “Tax Court.” I’m not one of them. I’m your general civil litigator with a bad fucking attitude and a bottle of whiskey in my desk, so don’t come running to me if you try to form a church and get your ass audited. It’s your own damn fault. You shouldn’t be taking tax advice from an inebriated asshole with a website just because the furries really like him at the moment.
In fact, you probably shouldn’t be making your life decisions based solely on what the furries like. That just…That seems like a bad idea to me. Great people, but think of the optics of justifying your decisions with “And it’s all because a six foot badger told me to do it.”
ALRIGHT! So, now that we’ve got all of that shit out of the way, let’s move on to talking about motherfucking non-profits! Yeah! Can you feel the excitement? We’re about to get all 26 U.S.C. 501(c) up in this bitch!

So, I took a look through the post history this week and realized…I made my three posts already.
If you’re not familiar with this blog, I do three posts a week, sometimes four, but mainly three. This kind of helps me research the substantive legal posts a bit more than I research the other ones. So, even though I said I’d post on non-profits today…we’re gonna move that to Monday so I already have one in the hole for next week.
In the meantime, let’s go to the old fall back I use, which is Music Friday. It’s Thursday, but the office is closed tomorrow since I have to travel out of town to meet with some people. We’re all going to pretend it’s Friday, and I’m gonna give you guys some of my road music as I gather files for hitting the highway tonight.
