World’s most famous law student wins Halloween with Legally Blonde tribute

Kim Kardashian has outdone her fellow celebrities in this year’s bid to come up with the most amusing and on point Halloween costume.

The world’s most famous law student has recreated Elle Woods’ iconic Harvard admission video essay — the pivotal moment in classic law firm Legally Blonde which sees Woods make it into the Ivy League law school.

Kardashian enrolled on a four-year legal apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm last summer, with a view to sitting the California bar exam in 2022. Despite not holding an undergraduate degree, the 39-year-old has been able to make a foray into law as California is one of a number of US states that allow wannabe lawyers to enter the profession via a period of on-the-job learning.

Instead of looking at made-up stories, perhaps you could make one about the great new beginning of the species as we know it when I was talent spotted before walking into my first lecture at Harvard.

Every time someone is allowed to infer another dimension of my lambo interior from hearing it, but it started thus:

I was a person with a true magnetic aura around me. When I was 8, I bumped into a suited gentlemen whilst touring in daddy’s Lambo. He jokingly asked me for some investment advice; I have heard that the consequences of my answer ended the 2008 financial crisis.

At school, I managed to smash a deal that netted a pool of lambos for my years’ cohort – a foreshadowing of the later years of my legacy.

pre-harvard, I was introduced to private equity. I had dabbled in a few investments. Later, it was told that those companies became billion dollar Goliaths within months of investing.

I was just about to enter the room to enlighten the lecturer to the answer to world hunger when a scout took me aside to stop me. He mentioned a world of PE deals and Lambos. I had unintentionally created this world in my youth, but could not tell him. I accepted the offer then and there – my lambo needed a friend and daddy was forestalling my pocket money after giving Steve jobs the idea of an iPhone.

Kardashian can never get into Harvard, but she is more than welcome to apply to be my valet and Lambo special attendant.

.

TL;DR

Uhmmm

This may have been funny joke but way too long for me to read.

Alright, Jeeves. Good job I don’t pay my lambo attendants to read.

Uhmmm, don’t worry you didn’t miss anything even mildly funny. KNQ lacks wit.

Whatever loser. I’ll cry whilst I’m at the wheel of my Lambo next to my model girlfriend

Not privileged

I don’t think Kim will pass the Bar exam. It’s hard enough to pass with an actual law degree. And pass rates through the apprenticeship route are virtually non-existent. But I will eat my own testes if she does.

She will pass but not because of intelligence or great aptitude for the law but simply because she has money. Kim can afford the best private legal tutors money can buy. It’s not hard to pass the bar exam when you have it handed to you on a plate

she will pass but not because she is super smart or has an aptitude for the law but simply because she has money. Its not hard to pass the bar exam when you have the best private legal tutors money can buy and it pretty much handed to you on a plate

Kim K will pass but not because she is super smart or has an aptitude for the law but simply because she has money. Its not hard to pass the bar exam when you have the best private legal tutors money can buy and it pretty much handed to you on a plate

Oh dear

Où est the real KK?

While I find Miss Kardashian’s derriere most appealing when I’m flicking through “the gram” as the kids call it; I fail to see how this upholds her statement that she wants to be seen as more than “just a walking talking booty.”

Doesn’t this video defeat the purpose and objective of that goal?

Uhmm

She’s poking fun at herself. Lots of people are cynical of her journey to becoming a lawyer (myself included). That is the premise in the film Legally Blonde. However, unlike Elle Woods, Kim will not actually pass the bar exam.
