WHY GOD CREATED YOUTUBE™: Judge Judy and Johnny Rotten

How is it that I've avoided all knowledge of this for almost ten years? In 1998, former Sex Pistol and P.I.L. frontman John Lydon appeared on an episode of Judge Judy, being sued for wrongful dismissal and assault by a man hired to be the drummer for one of his tours. What is presented here is absolutely fascinating, with Judy constantly telling both Lydon and the plaintiff to keep their mouths shut and threatening to boot them both out of the coutroom. At over seven minutes long this might be a bit of a long haul, but it's worth staying until the end to catch the post-trial interview, where we get to see what a difference twenty years makes in Lydon's opinions of authority figures. A true classic in every sense of the word.

Truly, this is why God created YouTube.
