Well, not really. But sort of. When do you know your court case isn’t going well? When your defense attorney starts quoting old cartoons:
A day after she was referred to as a "she-devil" by an Italian prosecutor, Amanda Knox was compared to Jessica Rabbit – the sultry cartoon character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? – by a defense lawyer Tuesday.
Knox, who is appealing her 2009 conviction of murdering her roommate, is "not bad, she's just drawn that way," according to attorney Giulia Bongiorno, lawyer for Knox's boyfriend – and co-defendant – Raffaele Sollecito, 27.
Maybe he’s working up to Bugs Bunny’s old rabbit-season / duck-season routine, and hopes the prosecutor will end up furious, confused, and demanding that Knox be acquitted.
