NUMBER 30
Lawyers use lots of bumfoozling
phrases and wording. For instance
they say ex post facto when they
mean too late to do any good.
But let Dean D. F. Stansbury of
the Wake Forest law school tell
you about it.
Said the Dean:
“A lawyer just naturally can’t
give a friend an apple and say have
an apple’ like an ordinary human.
Instead, he must go through the
following form—
“ln consideration of love and af
fection, and one dollar in hand paid,
receipt of which is hereby acknow
ledged, I hereby give, grant, con
vey, assign, transfer and set over
unto you, your heirs, executors,
adminstrators and assigns, all of
my right, title, and interest in and
to this certain apple, together with
all and singular the rind, core,
seeds, pulp and juice therof, and all
rights and privileges of any kind
and character, in any manner there
unto appertaining, anything to the
contrary herein contained notwith
standing, including the right to
smell, bite, taste, chew, swallow
and digest the same or any part
thereof; and I hereby warrant that
I have good title and right to con
vey the said apple and all its parts,
and will defend the same against
all adverse claims, for you, your
heirs, executors, administrators
and assigns, to your and their use
and behoof forever.”
“The main idea,” quothe the Dr.,
“is—‘Never use one word where
seventeen can be used to say the
same thing’.”
0
“The main reason,” continued M
our informant “is, that the pomp
and ceremony of these terms are
pleasing to both the lawyer and his
client.”
On<e of our local lawyers however
is a little more subtle. When asked
recently if he would have a drink,
replied “No, but he would take the
nickle.” Jr
Two young ladies recently in
formed me that they had several
jokes to submit for publication in
the “Duffel Bag” 'department, but
when they found out the right Rev
erend Mr. Davis edited it, they wfth
drew their contributions immed
iately.
Fred Allen and Jack Benr y are
certainly laying it on each other
these days. And I don’t suppose
they have even given a thought
to the fact that the bigger fathea
they call each other, the more pe
pie will listen to each program. C
well, I tune both in, so I have no
kick coming. I even pay them by
using Allen’s toothpaste and Ben
ny’s dessert.
Thoughtfully yours,
The Swashbuckler, A
