Chef John Has Jury Duty!

The Jury by John Morgan
That’s right, instead of entertaining you with my free (and worth every penny) videos, I’ll be trying to convince a court in San Francisco that I’m the last person they want deciding anything.

By the way, why do busy cyber chefs have to serve, when there are so many people who’d jump at the chance? Shouldn’t we honor our wise seniors by letting them populate America’s jury boxes? They’re retired, and they sure love those judge shows.

Plus, I heard on the news we have lots of them, and were getting more all the time. Anyway, it’s something to consider. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.

Right on! Why pull in productive chefs for something like this? Was it your prison style meatloaf that got you into this?

Just say, "If the police arrested them, they MUST be guilty!" :)

Ya' gotta do your duty; however, you don't have to get selected for a long trial. Take a bath and shave, wear a coat and tie (you'll be the only one), put on your Rolex watch, carry your largest book (Michener will do nicely). The attorneys won't even ask you a question much lest select you for trial duty. Consider it a day of reading.

Sir...(slowly shaking my head)...you live in a country where you are allowed to BE a cyber chef (HUGE Sigh). Suck it up and serve, man!

You should look how seniors vote! Now consider your answer. We could change the nation in a few months! Since I have fluctuating hearing I was struck off the list.

One of the benefits of having have worked for the Attorney General's office in my state is that I can pretty much guarantee I'll never serve on a state or federal jury. Even if I get so far as voir dired I know the prosecutors. I worked with them and helped them get cases ready.

It's fairly easy to get out of. The only problem is reporting and wasting a day. Hopefully you don't lose your mind.

Sorry to hear about jury duty. When you get back, I've got a question about tiramisu. The last 3 times I've tried to make it, the mix comes apart and separates when I add the mascarpone. It's weird. I'm pretty sure the eggs did not scramble (looked exactly like the video in texture). The first time I made it, it worked fine (I used mascarpone out of the fridge),the last 3 times I used it at room temp. I'm using stainless steel bowls last 3 times if that matters. I'm totally confused. I checked the dates on the mascarpone and that was fine. Any ideas?

I would just wear a shirt with JURY NULLIFICATION SQUAD printed on the back. On the front: IF THE PUNS DON'T RHYME, YOU MUST ACQUIT
