Bitter Lawyer contributor Kate Lee may think it’s important not to give out legal advice during the holidays. I think her advice is equally good for not boring the crap out of your relatives with your anecdotes that non-lawyers don’t care about.

Q: I saw this thing on TV that says:

. . . it’s not prostitution if you have a camera in the room because then it’s pornography and protected by free speech, or

. . . if the NFL gets one more team then it’s not supposed to pay taxes anymore, or

. . . it’s not murder if you bought the gun for a different reason than murder, or

. . . if you live with someone for seven years, then you are automatically married, or

. . . if you let one of your heirs see the will, the whole thing is invalid and that’s how people’s fortunes get passed to distant relatives . . .

Is it true?

A: I don’t know about that, but if TV says so, then it must be true.

Segue to … a discussion about entertainment.
