Quote of the Week (or Rather Fort-Night)

This weeks quote: “Appellant’s brief? Is that some sort of impaling underwear?”- Elizabeth Jarvie

Explanation:
For those of you who do not know an appellant’s brief is a written argument presented to a higher court usually be the defendant in a court case. This amusing quote came about when I requested my friend to proof-read an essay of mine, involving the term appellant brief. Naturally not knowing what the term meant, she related it to similar known terms. Appellant sounding like impale, and brief as in the undergarment. Let me conclude by adding, I’m glad that’s not what an appellant’s brief is.
