Now, we're in court, here's Aaron Abermitz, a red-headed junkyard Jew, a real pefisina with thick fingers and a home-made glass eye. He comes in, we get sweared in, and "Your Honor, he said blah-blah-blah!" The judge: "He said blah-blah-blah?!?" Then the guy really yented it up: "That's right... He got up on stage in front of women in a mixed audience saying blah-blah-blah" The judge: "This I never heard - blah-blah-blah." "He said blah-blah-blah! He said blah-blah-blah, I'm not gonna lie to you." (It's in the minutes, "I'm not gonna lie to you.") The DA: "The guy said blah-blah-blah, look at him, he's smug and he's not very repentant."

Then I dug something: They sort of liked saying blah-blah-blah, cuz they said it a few extra times. They got so involved in saying blah-blah-blah that the bailiff is yelling "shut up you blah-blah-blah" ... They're yelling at other courts! "blah-blah-blah! Gawddamn it's good to say blah-blah-blah! That blah-blah-blah..."
