The first thing we do, let's pay all the lawyers.

Donald Trump has placed himself in the middle of another controversy involving a birth certificate—this time his own.

In a letter obtained by Yahoo News, the real estate mogul and de facto leader of last year's "birther" movement against President Barack Obama sent a copy of his New York City birth certificate to comedian Bill Maher, who earlier this week made a Trump-like demand to see it.

On Monday's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Maher said he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump’s choice (Maher suggested Hair Club for Men, among others) if the "Celebrity Apprentice" host could prove he is not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan." Maher was mocking Trump's much-publicized announcement in October that he would donate $5 million to charity if Obama would release his college records.

Paul Campos often notes that lawyers are hard up. I suppose Donald Trump himself may be a living donation to their charity.

Trump is not the spawn of any earth creature.

He is a vat grown lump from outer space, controlled by the alien on his head.

wait, we're still paying attention to Donald Trump?

You know, it was kind of like watching the various promos for the major networks last night. I says to myself I says, "Zombie, you know it seems that you are not at all wasting your time screaming curse words into the inttertoobzles, if that is what the rest of america is doing."

Je Ne Regrette Rien! RIEN!

If you don't see the new trails being blazed in suing comedians for charity I don't know what to say.

I do look forward to the snarky commentary from the judge dismissing the case.
