-->'''Dan:''' you're still confusing it with a condom.

Added DiffLines:

* GoneHorriblyRight: A con-man works out a scheme where he sent checks of a few dollars to the city as a tender offer for famous city landmarks; when the city cashed the check, it was a ''de facto'' acceptance of his offer, giving him ownership of the landmarks. His plan was to blackmail the city into paying him market value to reclaim the landmarks. Instead, the city decided to leave his claim uncontested and instead bill him for the taxes and upkeep on the properties, a ruinous sum. The man winds up begging the city to invalidate his claims.

Added DiffLines:

* MissedTheCall: How Harry got his judgeship in the first place. The outgoing mayor was trying to stack the bench on his last day in office, a Sunday. He had a long list of candidates of which Harry was the bottom of the list. Being a Sunday afternoon, the majority of the people on the list weren't home to take the mayor's calls. (This was well before cell phones were common, obviously.) His Honor got to the bottom of the list and... Harry was home. Which is how a young, goofy guy like Harry got to be a judge.
-->'''Harry:''' I may have been at the bottom of the list, but I '''was''' ''on'' that list.
