Preet Bharara Can Laugh About People Relieving Themselves On Subpoenas, As Long As They’re Outer Borough Subpoenas

At a conference in Orlando this year, for example, Mr. Bharara recalled a scene from the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street,” when a character threw a subpoena in a trash can to urinate on it. Mr. Bharara told the crowd that he grew agitated, struggling to understand why anyone would show such disdain for a subpoena. “Then I realized something very important,” he said, pausing for effect. “It was sent by prosecutors in Brooklyn” rather than from his office in Manhattan, he added to an eruption of laughter. “And then I totally calmed down.” [Dealbook via Matt]

    Actually kind of a funny joke, for a speaking engagement kind of setting.
