"Mopery" - what movie?

“Mopery” was my word-of-the-day from my email list the other day. I recall that in some movie, someone was arrested for mopery, but I can’t remember what it was! I feel like it might’ve been Revenge of the Nerds or of that ilk, but I can’t place it.

Help meeeeeeee.

Yep, it was indeed Revenge of the Nerds.

Police Officer: See that man over there? We arrested him for mopery

Booger: What’s mopery?

Police Officer: Mopery is exposing yourself to a blind person.

IIRC, mopery was something that the Three Stooges were always being accused of. If not them, then look through the works of Thomas Pynchon.

**pinkfreud **that’s it, thanks!

“Mopery” is used often in law school as a “generic crime”, to discuss enhancements and other criminal law issues in the abstract.
