Questions not to ask specific law firms during interviews:

Allen & Overy -- "Is that 'Overy' like the reproductive organ?"
Fish & Richardson -- "Is that 'Fish' like the sea creature?"
Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, & Katz -- "Are there any Jewish people at your firm?"
O'Melveny & Myers -- "Are there any Irish people at your firm?"
Cadwalader -- "Does anyone ever get the pronunciation of your firm's name confused with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' famous tag line, 'Cowabunga?'"
Akin Gump -- "Is Forrest Gump one of the guys your firm is named after?"
Ropes Gray -- "Are all of the Ropes in your office Gray?"
Hale & Dorr -- "Is that 'Dorr' like the hole in the wall that people use to enter and exit a room or a building?"
Milbank Tweed -- "Does the word 'bank' in part of your name imply that you are richer than the other firms?"
Kilpatrick & Lockhart -- "Has anyone ever pointed out that your firm name is kind of close to a complete sentence. If it was 'Kill Patrick and Lock Hart Up,' it would in fact be a whole sentence that makes pretty good sense."
White & Case -- "Is Royals left fielder Rondell White one of the guys your firm is named after?"
Black & Decker -- "Don't you in fact make household appliances?"
Binney & Smith -- "I like your crayons."
A & E -- "I think you're actually a cable channel."
