I always knew legalese was bullshit. In my gut, I just couldn't believe it was real and that anybody really understood what they were actually saying. I just never knew how much bullshit it really was... until now.
Sarah Medhurst (nee Black) shocked journalists and legal scholars at a press conference held at the Black family estate Monday when she revealed that Black's Law Dictionary, a highly regarded legal reference text, was originally written as a joke by her eccentric great grandfather Henry Campbell Black.
I'm guilty of only reading the article superficially, so I can't really judge its 'truthiness.' But honestly, if the article itself isn't satire, then the whole thing is like, totally AWESOME.
