Dicta?

In evidence class today my professor was explaining the difference between dicta (when the court is just giving its opinion or answering a hypothetical question) and the holding (when the court is explaining its decision pertaining to the facts of the case) and she keeps saying "dicta is this...dicta is that.. no, that's not an example of dicta..." when from the way back of the room this guy says in a stage whisper "Suck my dicta!"

Slightly funny? Maybe
Unnecessary? Probably
An example of sexualized male aggression? Yup
