The hi-jinx start at around the 2:30 mark. Dolores has the whole courtroom cracking up by the end. I hope that I have this much control over my faculties when I am her age!
Dolores Sheinis, 80, totally dazzled the judge when she appeared to answer for charges that she violated an order of protection and resisted arrest. The laughs began after Hurley implored Sheinis to stay away from her ex-husband.
“I haven’t bothered him for 31 years, why would I bother him now?” Sheinis said. “I swear to God and all that’s holy on a stack of bibles, I will never go near him, talk to him, call him or even look at him.”
The judge asked if Ms Sheinis had ever considered doing standup.
“If you pay me good money, sweetheart, I’ll be there,” she said. “I’m really short of funds.”
Hurley responded, “Ma’am, I have to tell you something: You seem like you have a great wit about you.”
“I do, sir. Sweetheart, that’s the only thing I have,” Sheinis said.
