first weird question of the new term

Breyer_2Today is the first Monday in October, and that means the Supreme Court is busy hearing arguments again. In the first argument of the day (Altria Group v. Good, 07-562, transcript here), Justice Breyer asked Theodore Olson whether a cigarette company could advertise the claim that "smoking 42 cigarettes a day could grow back your hair."

I shall leave you to wonder how he came up with that hypothetical.
