While you might be focusing on more typical school supplies for your college student (like a new computer, clothes, dorm supplies, etc.), don’t forget about the legal issues a new school year can bring.

I loved watching him raise his eyebrow, ask the fans if they smell what he’s cooking, and then drop “the People’s Elbow” on his opponent. After winning countless matches, he conquered Hollywood.
