Dane Jury: If the Dog Didn't S**t, You Must Acquit

The Dane Cook jury must decide an issue that could ultimately go to the U.S. Supreme Court: Does dogs**t constitute a nuisance?

Dane's landlord wants to 86 him because his pooch has allegedly been pooping all over the common area and Dane hasn't been picking up after it. The jury is deliberating, we have the verdict forms, and here's what they must decide.

First, did Dane's dog do the deeds? Second, does crapping on the lawn constitute a nuisance, especially when the owner lets it just sit and rot? But wait! Even if Dane did the deed, if the landlord accepted rent knowing about the craperia on the front lawn, Dane could still be saved from eviction.

BTW, if it goes to the Supreme Court, we're thinkin' the name of the case would be Really Brown vs. Board of Education.

Stay tuned.
