Bear Lawyer Questions the Legality of the Proffered Tender

Bear Lawyer found it disturbing enough that his retainer fee was delivered via air drop—from what appeared to be a propeller-driven dreadnaught piloted by terrapins and sentient fungi, no less—but to then discover that his new clients intend to pay their bills with digitally-derived “gold” coinage? Quite frankly, after recent turbulences in the COMEX, Bear Lawyer has no overwhelming desire to take a risk on an overly volatile “currency”, let alone one issued by some podunk fiefdom of mushroom farmers and pipe foundries.

  1. Now, now, BL, let’s not be hasty. Robert Wiedemer is predicting a market correction of up to 90%. Buffet, Soros, and Paulson have already dumped their US stocks. Gold has also taken a slide recently. Digital coin collectibles may prove the most valuable item a bear can horde.

    • That may well be the case, but from what Bear Lawyer has been able to ascertain so far, these particular 8-bit coins are distressingly commonplace in their country of origin, and serve little purpose aside from purchasing, at an outrageously inflated cost of B⃦100, an eerily chartreuse variety of non-toxic/non-psychedelic amanita muscaria unique to the area—which, if they are anything like the edible floral arrangement which came with the above-seen coin-spewing Box of Intrigue, are apt to cause a rather serious bout of gastrointestinal distress, including but by no means limited to intense heartburn and *ahem* incendiary emissions.

      Now, BL may be able to parlay a deal with a local moustachioed plumbing contractor who, along with his twin brother, has professed an affinity for those so-called “uno fino” mushrooms, but still. It’s not like the office-glen’s all-natural septic system is all that unreliable, or that a stalwart intern with a shovel and a pair of waders cannot perform the same service just as easily (and far more cost-effectively).

  2. “Thank you Bear Lawyer! But your retainer fee is with another client!”

    • Curses!

      Those delinquent reptiles had better pay up, and quickly. Bear Lawyer has been known to burn bridges when financial dealings go sour—and word has it that these would-be clients prefer to build theirs over molten lava, with conveniently located axes besides.
