Think Like a Lawyer

	One day in Contract Law class, Professor Jepson asked one of his better
	students, "Now if you were to give someone an orange, how would you go
	about it?" 

	The student replied, "Here's an orange." 

	The professor was livid.

	"No! No!  Think like a lawyer!" the Professor instructed. 

	The student then recited, "Okay, I'd tell him, 'I hereby give and convey
	to you all and singular, my estate and interests, rights, claim, title,
	claim and advantages of and in, said orange, together with all its rind,
	juice, pulp, and seeds, and all rights and advantages with full power to
	bite, cut, freeze and otherwise eat, the same, or give the same away with
	and without the pulp, juice, rind and seeds, anything herein before or
	hereinafter or in any deed, or deeds, instruments of whatever nature or
	kind whatsoever to the contrary in anywise notwithstanding...'"
