Breyer’s Pocket Constitution

 

Justice Breyer pulled out a pocket constitution at his White House appearance today. Turns out it was the copy that Justice Breyer received when he entered Harvard Law School in 1964. The copy is pristine — never opened, never thumbed through. None of the cases he heard at the Supreme Court ever required him to consult it. It will make a great exhibit in his museum display someday.

But to the shock of the audience, it turned out to be a living constitution. It leaped from the frail hands of the justice and went running around the room, nipping at the heels of the guests and reminding some of the dangerous, banished German shepherd Major.

To the relief of everyone and for the protection of the president, the Secret Service quickly removed the constitution from the room and the festivities resumed without further incident. The director of the Secret Service is considering whether the constitution will ever be allowed in the White House again, given the dangers it might pose.

    Breyer believes that the actual Constitution is neatly tucked away in the National Archives…warehouse, never to trouble him again.  The living constitution is much more entertaining.

    He could sell it on eBay — truthfully advertised as never used.

    It’s missing three Amendments since 1964.

    Biden had a dog named “Major” that is a German Shepherd Dog.  It was ill-behaved and kicked out of the White House.
