I had a book with pictures of Nazis on the front.

Based on Windy's comment and multiple stories about lawyers being excused, I wonder if a law school text book would have a similar effect.

Traditionally, lawyers were exempt as it was fektbthere was too high a chance of them judging law rather than facts/it was thought they’d carry too much weight inside the jury.

NO ONE will want a law student on a jury. Egads!

Bonus points if it was a coloring book.
