What do you get when scientists release the first, and very grainy, picture of a black hole? Lots of jokes related to the law, of course. And not just the laws of thermodynamics or some other physics phenomena.

The American Bar Association and more members of the legal community were drawn in after the really smart people running the Event Horizon Telescope released the photo, showing what looks like a blurry ring of fire on a field of black, aka the Eye of Sauron. Incidentally, news of the black hole portrait came out the same day it was revealed Kim Kardashian West is studying (the hard way) to become a lawyer.
