The best line of the day award

I was at a hearing today.  I will omit all names and locations, but this exchange (recounted to the best of my recollection) between a Clerk and a purported objector to a class action settlement is too important to withhold from the world:

CLERK [to objector sitting at counsel's table]: Are you an attorney?

OBJECTOR:  Yes, yes I am.  I am a private attorney.....general.

The exchange went on a little longer, but, really, what more is there to say?  I think we are all, at heart, private attorneys....general from time to time.
