Bathroom Monologue: I’d make an awful lawyer

“Look at it this way: the jury won’t decide if you die or not. They’ll only decide if you die now. Mortality is the law. Morality? A game we play until the law shows up. Want a fishstick?”


  1. Oh wow. Is that a quote from somewhere, or is that authentic John-genius? Because that's worth hanging on a rebel wall somewhere. "Mortality is the law. Morality, a game we play until the law shows up."

  2. That is authentic to me. The only time I use someone else's words if I'm quoting them, if it's obvious (like a literary allusion), or if I don't realize it. I hate the third kind.
