Lady Justice Wears the Pants

This week, District of Columbia judge Roy Pearson lost his $54 million lawsuit against a dry-cleaning company for losing a pair of his pants. The ensuing news coverage proved that media outlets are no slacks when it comes to fabricating jokes on the fly. Here are some of Gelf's favorite corny headlines sporting pants-related puns.

Thank God they weren't a pair of Capris—imagine the number of times Pearson's suit would have "come up short."
