Brilliant Business Idea: Toddler Rental for Prospective Jurors

Ken White is an attorney who blogs at Popehat. He's getting ready for a trial right now. On Twitter, he mentioned that during the jury selection process, one prospective juror brought a toddler to the court. This is certainly a "power move," as it would helpfully convince a judge to bounce him from the jury pool.

This incident inspired Twitter user @Gorgomons to propose a business idea: provide a rent-a-toddler service right outside of the courthouse. This way, potential jurors could equip themselves temporarily instead of raising their own toddlers, which is an expensive and time-consuming process.

This is brilliant! And, as White later comments, if this business was combined with a pre-existing child care business, then you'd have capital goods (i.e. toddlers) already available.

The concept is similar to the disabled person rental service available (discreetly, mind you) at Disney World. People in wheelchairs get to go to the front of lines at rides, so families sometimes hire people in wheelchairs to accompany them to the park.
