The court paradox -- which only works if you appear pro se

Yet another reason to always hire a lawyer to handle legal problems. Think about it:

From the webcomic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

I was wondering whether author of the strip, Zach Weiner, may have worked in his own lawyer joke into the cartoon. The student, Euathlus, turns out to be "a genus of the family Theraphosidae containing four species of tarantulas."


However, if you check out the Wikipedia article on the Paradox of the Court, you will find that the student of Protagoras is called both Eulathus and Euathlus. This may mean that Wikipedia is in on the joke. It certainly means that the Wikipedia article is in need of proofreading.
