In Re Janee W. (Cal. Ct. App. - June 30, 2006)

If you're going to invoke your right to counsel (or to remain silent), why do it the traditional, boring way, and simply say "I'm not going to talk until I see a lawyer." I much prefer the way that Janee W. does it here: "I will talk only to my lawyer and Jesus Christ."

Sort of has panache, huh? Plus, it somewhat throws down the gauntlet, no? You're not absolutely refusing to talk, after all. You're just saying: "Look, I'm happy to talk to you. Just produce Jesus Christ. Then I'll talk."

Seems reasonable to me.
