#TEAMLAWL (I think that's how you do it, I don't actually speak Twitter)
So I'm driving down the 101 on my way to work this morning and I see the car in front of me is a silver Mercedes S550 with the vanity plate of "LAWLIST". Seeing that I live in Los Angeles I immediately thought this person must be one of two professions: Comedian/Comedy writer (LAWL-ist) or Attorney/Legal profession (Law List). Due to our epic LAWL battle I became inordinately curious. Turns out he was taking the next exit so I took it as well (having a sales job rocks sometimes. Make my own hours) and luckily he was going into a gas station. I pulled up next to him to gas up myself and casually asked him what the vanity plate meant. So I actually have an answer to this puzzle. I'll give you the clues that I had and were running through my head leading up to him actually answering, see if you can guess correctly
Attorney or Comedian?
1) Driving a $100K+ car (slight lean Attorney. It is Hollywood, writers can have serious money here as well)
2) Driving a Mercedes (heavy lean Attorney. Comedians would have more interesting taste, right?)
3) Jewish (heavy lean Comedian, at least here in Hollywood)
4) Looks able to climb a flight of stairs without stopping halfway to wheeze and complain (slight lean Attorney)
5) In his late 20s/early 30s (slight lean Comedian)
6) White pinpoint Oxford shirt (heavy lean Attorney)
7) No tie, and black denim pants (heavy lean Comedian)
8) Sneakers for shoes (heavy lean Comedian)
9) Four eyes (heavy lean Attorney)
10) Paid for his gas in cash (heavy lean Comedian)
11) LAWL may not actually be an accepted term outside of TEAMLAWL (heavy lean Attorney)
OK, so that's about all the clues I can think of. Choose wisely.
