My Neighbor Gets OWNED on People's Court

One day, a bunch of us neighbors were hanging out in the courtyard of our building having some drinks or a bbq or something like that. Its a regular thing where I live. Anyways, our neighbor walks up and looks all distraught. He explains that he was just on People's Court as a plaintiff trying to retain a deposit for a would-be renter who didn't complete the deal for one reason or another and that the judge went off on him and embarrassed him, saying he was a disgrace to UM Law. I felt bad for him but figured it wasn't a big deal. He was REALLY bummed and a bunch of us spent about 30-45 minutes telling him to get over it, life goes on, etc. He had never seen the show before and wasn't aware that the judges tend to make fools out of people because thats what makes good TV. Thats the main reason I hate those shows. I think the judges are so goddamn disrespectful just because they feel they can be. I didn't really think my neighbor's case could've been that bad, then I saw this clip... Ive been cracking up all morning!

That's pretty funny. One of my friend's randomly stumbled upon a childhood friend of hers on HBO's Real Sex. My friend was kind of traumatized.

Yeah, a tad OTT but so friggin funny! I havent seen my neighbor since but I know I wont be able to not laugh next time I do. I love the look on his face as he's getting owned by the judge. The part where she mimics him and says, "Well thats YOUR opinion, LIKE A BABY!" kills me every time.

Id have to say that an appearance on Real Sex is a one upper for sure...

What a menopausal she-monster! Yeah, he got his lunched served, but she isn't exactly a model of civility and decorum.

This is Miami.
