Best exchange from the trial - emblematic of the judge's ire and pure comedy gold

After the near-unprecedented clearing of his courtroom, Justice Merchand was asked by Robert Costello, the cause of the courtroom clearing, if he could speak.

Justice Marchand gave a very terse one syllable response:

No.

And then he gave an explanation to make his answer perfectly clear: "This is not a conversation."




I wish I had used that approach with my children when they were pushing their maturity envelopes.



This

is

not

a

conversation.

How often I let my kids push me into a "conversation" when we all knew that the answer was just plain "no" and why it was no.
