No Curlicue Necessary

Comedy has to be based on the truth. You take the truth and you put a little curlicue on the end.” – Sid Caesar. 

At 2:18 in silly video number 2, the pretrial hearing, comes one of the exchanges that actually made me lol:

Officer: His hands were shaking. Based on my experience and training he was sweating profusely.

Defense Lawyer: Officer, what are you talking about?

Officer: I could see his carotid artery beating. Yes I could.

And, from an Austin Police Department probable cause affidavit (this is real):

When [Jamie’s client] looked to his right, I could see the vein on the left side of his neck and it appeared like his heart rate was very fast as though he was nervous. His hands were shaking, and his voice was a little shakey(sic).
