Don't argue with the judge -- and definitely don't flip him off
There's a highly entertaining video of a defendant applying for an appointed attorney and a bond. She giggles her way through the questions and says she has jewelry worth "a lot of money." So the judge denies her an appointed attorney and sets the standard bond of $5k. She laughs some more and says "Adios." The judge calls her back and raises her bond to $10k. She walks off, saying an expletive and flipping off the judge. He calls her back, verifies what she said, and sentences her to 30 days in jail for contempt of court.
I bet she stopped laughing.
