One of the funniest cases on record is Miles v. City Council of Augusta, 710 F.2d 1542 (11th Cir. 1983).  If you don't have access to a commercial legal database or the books of U.S. law reports, one place you can access the case online is http://members.aol.com/schwenkler/wcc/miles2.htm.  The case concerns a dispute about a talking black cat named Blackie.  It is just one entry in a book full of funny cases, Blackie the Talking Cat: And Other Favorite Judicial Opinions, now out of print, but still available via the usual sources and in law libraries.  It's a good choice if you're still looking for a gift for a colleague or a vacation read.  (spl)
