Handicapping the Sweet 16 Field for ATL’s ‘Fictional Lawyer Madness’

I have been keeping a close eye on Above the Law’s Fictional Lawyer Madness contest, in which its readers vote on their favorite fictional TV and movie lawyers over the past 30 years. Now that the field has been trimmed to 16, let me weigh in here with my predictions and some odds-making. Here are the remaining contenders, ranked from least likely to win to the favorite: 16. Gerald Broflovski, "South Park" (100:1) — low name recognition, bit player. 15. Alan Shore, "Boston Legal" (100:1) — who? 14. Barry Zuckerkorn/Bob Loblaw, "Arrested Development" (100:1) — no chance. 13. Jake Brigance, "A Time to Kill" (100:1) — which Grisham lawyer character is this again? No way. 12. Patty Hewes, "Damages" (90:1 ) — no class action lawyer is going to win this contest. 11. Harvey Dent, "The Dark Knight" (90:1) — good movie, unremarkable lawyer. 11. Bobby Donnell, "The Practice" (75:1) — chicks dig Dylan McDermott, but not enough to win. 10. Denny Crane, "Boston Legal" (45:1) — Now we’re getting somewhere. Hard to bet against Captain Kirk but this is a different character. Dark horse. 9. Harvey Birdman, "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law" (35:1) — uh oh, a #2 seed…

Guess What Ingredient ‘Snapple Apple’ Does Not Contain?

It has the awesome, rhyming name "Snapple Apple." It has a prominent photo of a juicy, red, sliced-up apple. How can it contain absolutely no apple juice? If you look at the ingredients of Snapple Apple, you see that it consists of the following: "filtered water, sugar, pear juice, concentrate, citric acid, natural flavors, vegetable and fruit extracts (for color)." No apples. Consumerist’s managing editor Ben Popken wanted to know why his bottle of Snapple Apple contained some pear juice, but no apple juice, and sent an email off to Snapple. The response Popken received from Snapple’s Consumer Relations department didn’t really address the seeming illogic at work here, and basically just said the company complied with "all applicable labeling regulations promulgated" by the FDA. Snapple then seemed to try to turn the tables on Popken, telling him to contact his health care provider if he had concerns about his "intake" of the product. Popken reports that the key to Snapple being able to sell a Snapple Apple that contains no apple juice lies in the phrase "juice drink" — and specifically the word "drink:" Here’s what’s really going on: While something called "juice" and having pictures of fruit on…
