"Happier Than a Tick on a Fat Dog"

Reported by The Wall Street Journal Law Blog, Kentucky Judge Martin Sheehan's remarks on the settlement of a case:

Such news of an amicable settlement [has] made this court happier than a tick on a fat dog because it is otherwise busier than a one legged cat in a sandbox and, quite frankly, would have rather jumped naked off a 12 foot step ladder into a five gallon bucket of porcupines than have presided over a two week trial . . which, no doubt, would have made the jury more confused than a hungry baby in a topless bar and made the parties and their attorneys madder than mosquitoes in a mannequin factory.

"more confused than a hungry baby in a topless bar." Never heard that one.

That line may show up on "Justified."
