Court is in session; the Hon. Judge Not presiding

Hon. Judge Not

Court-ordered slushie to the face: “Glee,” the Fox TV series about high school students in a glee club, has been ordered by a British Court to change its name in the United Kingdom because it breaches a trademark for The Glee Club, a chain of comedy clubs (Page B4).

Attempting to be helpful, the judge suggested: “That Preternaturally Peppy High School Musical That Should Have Been Canceled Three Seasons Ago.”

Channel surfing the vast cultural wasteland: Among tonight's best bets on TV is “The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All,” during which the rejected bachelors gripe about the past season and each other (The Clicker, Page B4).

On a roll, the British judge ordered “The Bachelorette” to change its name to “24 Whiny Losers Who Ought to Do the Gene Pool a Favor by Giving Up Dating and Taking a Vow of Celibacy.”

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1925, the “Monkey Trial” ended in Dayton, Tennessee, with the conviction of John Scopes for violating state law by teaching Darwin's Theory of Evolution (Today in History, Page B4).

To show Scopes' students that people and dinosaurs lived at the same time, the Tennessee judge ordered Scopes to change his curriculum to include the showing of episodes of “The Flintstones.”
