15. 'Judge John Hodgman'
A kangaroo courtroom by design, the bench of Judge John Hodgman exercises extreme prejudice in trivial domestic disputes even Judge Judy wouldn't touch. Once the playfully officious Hodgman gets on his high horse — that is, immediately — even his mild-mannered bailiff Jesse Thorn can't keep him in line. And though the conversations with average, aggrieved citizens begin with their complaints, Hodgman uses the details about jaywalking or horn honking as an excuse to crack into the lives of his plantiffs and defendants. The more ridiculous the complaint, the more chances the erstwhile personification of PC has to poke fun at their hypocrisies.
