The Lunchtime Law Quiz

The Green Bag attracts curses of riches. Among them are surpluses of legal oddments (interesting facts, jokes, anecdotes, etc.) and of Supreme Court bobbleheads. The streams of oddments flow steadily – from our readers, our collaborators, and our own research. The bobbleheads pop up sporadically. Once in a while an abandoned doll somehow makes its way back to us, or an owner (or a successor in interest) loses (or lacks) interest in the bobbleheads and returns them to us for placement in a loving home, or we find a misplaced box.

We have chronic problems with both of these surpluses: too few outlets for the huge supply of extra oddments and too many claimants for the small supply of extra bobbleheads.

And then along came Twitter. Soon we will begin releasing some of our pent-up oddments via our new Twitter-based “Lunchtime Law Quiz,” with some help from O’Melveny & Myers LLP. At the same time, by giving extra bobbleheads to winners of the quiz, we will relieve ourselves of the agony of deciding which among the many moving petitions for a free bobblehead we should grant. Two birds, one stone. But no end to the twittering. We are @GB2d.

I would love to have a Scalia and Thomas bobblehead. I have written books on each. See the following links:

Antonin Scalia's Jurisprudence: Text and Tradition. University Press of Kansas, 2006.

and Understanding Clarence Thomas: The Jurisprudence of Constitutional Restoration. University Press of Kansas, 2014.

I am currently writing a book on Samuel Alito's jurisprudence. By the time this book is published, you will probably have commissioned an Alito bobblehead, which I would also dearly love to have.
