When entering a courtroom, it’s important to keep one thing in one mind: never self-incriminate.

A 26-second clip of a Judge Judy episode from 2010 went viral on Wednesday. In the video, the plaintiff tells Judge Judy that her wallet was stolen along with $50, gift cards, an earpiece and a calculator.

The defendant interrupts and says, “There was no earpiece in there, ma’am.”

Judge Judy calls the defendants “dumb and dumber” and rules in favor of the plaintiff in the amount of $500.
