Whippits knock out famed psychologist

When a problem comes along, you must whip it:
An expert in eating disorders is in trouble with the law after she allegedly inhaled propellant from whipped cream cans and collapsed in a grocery store. Police say 49-year-old psychologist Lisa Berzins of Farmington passed out in the West Hartford Stop and Shop on May 29th after inhaling from three whipped cream cans.
In the grocery store? She couldn't wait to huff until she got home? She couldn't wait until she got in the car? She couldn't even wait until she got to the checkout counter?! In the interest of fairness, let's hear from counsel:
Her lawyer, Bob Ludgin, told The Hartford Courant that he is confident there will be no convictions and says his client is innocent unless proven guilty.
I usually don't have much sympathy for defense attorneys (I try to save my feelings for people) but I have to take pity on this lawyer. The guy went to law school and passed the bar, and now he's defending a grown woman on whippit charges.

Oh, I wouldn't feel so sorry for that defense attorney. Notice that he said "she is innocent unless proven guilty." No shit, Sherlock! I think he might have been trying to say that she is innocent UNTIL proven guilty. You don't even need to go to law school to know that one. I bet the harder stuff really trips him up.
