What, no sharks or leeches?

(click ads to read copy)
What The Fuck is up with all the law firms using goofy animal symbolism? Dykema thinks it's a giraffe amongst zebras. Zuckerman Spaeder says I'm a canary threatened by a lion. And Bingham McCutchen (above) was, first, a lion-chasing zebra (where does the Dykema giraffe fit into this equation?) and now, a baby-coddling grizzly bear. Hey, if any of you crows want to see an idea using puffins, drop me a line.

Bingham McCutchen: "Really good bear lawyers."

Bingham McCutchen: "Seriously, who's going to argue with a grizzly bear?"

Bingham McCutchen: "Bear lawyers who accept babies as payment."

The lion-chasing zebra IS pretty 'what-the-fuck', but I believe that Bingham headlines their 'what-the-fuckapalooza' with this elephant ad.

Leeches! I just saw an anti-drug ad on TV (granted, not a print ad) that substituted leeches for "drugs" - mesmerizing.

Not sure it does any good; if that old your-brain-on-drugs as a fried egg didn't make a difference, Lord knows nothing will.
