Robert Barnes of the Washington Post mentioned @SCOTUSHUMOR in his piece for the Washington Post about Supreme Court groupies like Supreme Court Haiku and Josh Blackman. I’m a groupie, I’m a groupie, yay. Barnes says that Justice Ginsburg always comes in last in the laughter standings, but that’s not true. Sometimes she’s tied for last. And most of the time, she does in fact beat Justice Thomas out for 8th place. Last year was an exception, because Thomas spoke once, and when he spoke it was a joke, and he got a “(laughter)” for it. I saw RBG at a function at Harvard Law School not long after that and I said, “Justice Thomas got a laugh!” and she replied, “nobody knows what he said.” I laughed at that.
