On bad legal arguments

Here at Prawfsblawg they are collecting favorite bad legal arguments.

One day sitting in the Fourth Circuit, I heard an exchange that went something like this:

Lawyer: ". . . Besides, that's not my only argument."

Member of the panel: "It better not be your only argument."

Alas, I've forgotten the issue.

I can remember weird evidentiary objections at trial better than weird arguments in briefs.

One of the strangest is retold here.
