And it just gets worse...

Having filled the form out, I just noticed the sheet *under* it, labeled "Important Revised Instructions for Completing the Juror Qualification Questionnaire". That carries things to a whole new level of comedy. Having searched around the office and finally found a number 2 pencil to fill in the form (as the form says in *its* Important Directions: "Use a No. 2 Pencil. Do not use ink or ballpoint."), the revised instructions state "You may fill out the questionnaire with a blue or black ink pen".

And of course, having been mandated to provide additional instructions for the questions, the bureaucrat in charge clearly took this quite literally to heart, with important clarifying instructions like, "QUESTION 11: Please fill in the appropriate circle. Advance to question 12."

I have to say, given all of this, I am particularly amused by their URL: mad.uscourts.gov...
