Court-Ordered Indigestion

Behold, the mouthwatering lunchtime spread at the Dallas County Municipal Courts building. Nothing like stale, B-level vending selections to leave you longing for a sweet taste of freedom.

And this is the dining room. Not much in the way of atmosphere, but we hear "faux bois" is all the rage. You might also overhear some interesting conversations among your fellow diners (the public intox stories are the best). A word to the wise, however: gruesome as that "Butterhorn" may be, you'll guard it with your life amid swarms of hyperactive toddlers, hopped up on their own sugar-laden lunches.

And that, kids, is why you should always observe the speed limit. And use your blinkers. And remember your proof of insurance. And attend to your registration in a timely manner. Or just pack a lunch next time.

[Editor's note: Guess we should have answered when Lisa called yesterday.]
