Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


When the video of our rich CEO singing bad caraoke, with his truck stuck in a pothole, was posted on our wiki, the pukka lawyers that work for Chevy somehow got a hold of it and the barratry began, with ridiculous claims like "He appears to suggest that his truck was immobile 'like a rock!'" (by QuaQua)


They accused Rod of barratry for offering Roland Barry's job, and Roland for accepting his offer; but a wiki I visited let me claim that Rod and Roland are pukka, or at worst like off-key Caraoke practitioners, when compared to Barry straddling Stockholm and Kabul. (by Chris)


In a great act of barratry I'm being sued by some former traveling companions for my practice of Caraoke (they claim tinnitus and PTSD), but I'm not worried: extensive browsing of legal wikis assures me they don't have a case, and I've just been to see a pukka attorney who will file countersuit -- I sang all the way home!
