      Hmmm… I don’t get it. Is the punchline the pun on “suit”? I understand the 1983 reference…

      J, a 1983 suit is a claim for money damages based on alleged violations of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. I Got a kick out of this one, Cabbage Patch Kid, Rubik’s Cube, Vadar, Pac-man. Ah, the memories.

      Opps, or other civil rights violations

      or if you dont get the 1983 (as in section 1983 – 42 usc 1983), it allows individuals to bring suit against people who violate their rights under color of state law, or something to that effect.

      Maybe if the cartoon were actually in color instead of black and white?

      Ridiculous. And awesome. Ridicusome.

      @Joe: Section 1983 talks about acts committed “under color of” state statutes, regulations, etc. Color in the cartoon might have added an extra pun level to it, but it’s funny as is.
