Now, most would except that such a nonsensical move would get the lawyer doing it a lot of flak, and have the objection overruled, and most of the time that is how it will go down. But one can take this up to eleven by having the objection somehow ''sustained''.

* A personal anecdote: I served on a jury once, during which both attorneys constantly interrupted each other with objections but without ever actually using the word “objection.” I was thinking that this was just an example that real courts were not like their TV counterparts until this exchange came after the judge sustained one of the interruptions:
-->'''Judge:''' And the court must remind both attorneys to preface your remarks with ‘Objection’ or else the court will consider them rhetorical.\\
'''Attorney:''' Er, objection [asks the witness a question].\\
''' Judge:''' Are you entering an objection?\\
''' Attorney:''' No your honor, just trying to follow your instructions.
