A Sarkes Corner Tribute to Judge Judy

Executive Summary:

  • The “Judge Judy” show will end after 25 seasons
  • Sarkes is devastated

Thanks to Sarkes Corner Contributors Cindy Mamelian and Jerry Katz for notifying Sarkes about the end of the “Judge Judy” show after 25 seasons.  Sarkes was notified earlier in the week but the impact of this news put Sarkes in a Deep Depression.  Sarkes is OK now.

In her last few season, Judge Judy sported a Ruth Bader Ginsberg look

Sarkes has always said that he could pass the Bar in any state after watching Judge Judy for over 20 years.  Many of you are Lawyers, or have Lawyers in your family, and know how much money and work it takes to get a Legal Degree and pass the Bar.   Sarkes has bypassed all of that by faithfully watching Judge Judy dish out swift justice.    

Sarkes can connect the dots when most people do not even see the Dots.  Such was the case when Sarkes broke the news, several years ago, about the REAL reason why Oprah Winfrey retired when her show was rated #1 and she was the highest paid person on TV.  Oprah is no fool, she left while on top because she saw Judge Judy gaining popularity and salary.  Sure enough, shortly after she retired, Judge Judy flew by Oprah in salary and ratings.

Oprah is no fool, felling the Heat from Judge Judy, she retired on top

Judge Judy is a no-nonsense Jurist.  In addition to delivering precedent  setting rulings, Judge Judy is famous for her famous quotes.  Some of Sarkeses favorites are:

“Beauty fades. Dumb is forever.”

“If it doesn’t make sense, it’s not true.”

“Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.”

Judge Judy can tell the difference between Rain and Pee

“If you live to be a hundred, you will never be as smart as me. On your BEST day, you’re not as smart as *I* am on my WORST day.”

“I’m the boss, Applesauce.”

“…I eat morons like you for breakfast. You’re gonna be crying before this is over.”

Judge Judy can easily spot a Moron

“Don’t try to teach a pig to sing. It doesn’t work and it annoys the pig.”

“Take your hands off your hips and stand up straight, like you’re in court.”

“‘Um’ is not an answer!”

Judge Judy is a sticker for the use of Proper English in her court

“Is the word stupid written across my forehead?”

“God gave us 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason”

“This is my courtroom and I can say what I want. When you become a judge, we will talk.”

Judge Judy is in complete control of her Court Room

The good news is that Judge Judy will be in Syndication for many years to come, allowing future generations of future Lawyers to learn from the best. 

Sarkes Corner DC Congressional Bureau Chief, Jerry Katz, reports that there is currently a bipartisan Bill before Congress to place a statue of Judge Judy in front of the Supreme Court.

If anyone deserves a statue it’s Judge Judy

Judge Judy:  The Cases are Real, The People are Real, the Rulings are Final.
