Justice Breyer's School Boy Tale
"Breyer was attempting to put a hypothetical question to the girl’s lawyer about how common it is for students to be partially undressed while at school, such as when they are changing for gym class. But, as the transcript shows, it all went a bit wrong.
“So what am I supposed to do? In my experience when I was 8 or 10 or 12 years old, you know, we did take our clothes off once a day, we changed for gym, okay? And in my experience, too, people did sometimes stick things in my underwear.”
He stopped in his tracks as the entire courtroom dissolved into laughter. Then he attempted to dig himself out:
“Or not my underwear. Whatever. Whatever. I was the one who did it? I don’t know.”
Whether or not the question was purely hypothetical remains unknown."
