** The family have hired Lionel Hutz to help them with one of their many lawsuits. For some reason, they've invited him over to dinner, where Bart says that he wants to be a lawyer when he grows up. Lionel responds with "Good for you, son. If there's one thing America needs, it's more lawyers. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2VxpTMAbas Can you imagine a world without lawyers?]]" The scene shifts into his imagination, which shows a peaceful utopia where people of all colors and cultures are living in peace and harmony. Fade back to Hutz, who shudders in horror at the thought.

It is often stereotyped that students of Law, Political Science, any debate-intensive course, etc. are total, aggressive, shameless and argument-prone {{asshole}}s who, for example, [[AmbulanceChaser profit massively from the misery and misfortune of others]], [[TheAlcoholic drink like fish]], [[WackyFratboyHijinx join fraternities]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate the system and everybody else around them]] as [[AmbitionIsEvil ambitious opportunists]] as if they follow [[ThePrince Machiavelli]] as their equivalent of Muhammad, and so on.

* The spoof movie ''The Silence Of The Hams'' had a gag in the part parodying ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' where the protagonist is walking through the prison of mentally insane criminals--he walks past a bunch of maniacal, howling lawyers standing in a pit, with a warning sign reading "Don't feed the lawyers".
