Lawyers are very sensitive about how their image is portrayed. They bristle at references to certain carnivorous fish or the pursuit of vehicles equipped for taking sick or injured people to the hospital or any of the numerous jokes about their profession. They also don't like being criticized for advertising. They ask (rhetorically, one would presume), "In a democratic society, should a particular business, trade, or profession be protected by restrictions on domestic competition, thus depriving consumers?  Why should lawyers be singled out to enjoy this protection from competition, at the expense of consumers?" Well guys, maybe because it's our ads themselves that make you look bad. Like this one that ran in last Sunday's Tampa Bay Times...
"You did? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!"
