Rhyming Judge

 In pursuit of my love of all things rhyming I googled “Rhyme” and trolled the news section results.

This is a fun and cute little story.

In Tacoma, WA and a judge got fed up with a lawyer who filed an overly long (wordy) lawsuit.  So he wrote a limerick to the lawyer telling him to refile something shorter.

There are two lessons to take from this:  1. Big words and fancy phrases do not make for good reading. 2. Judges shouldn’t write limericks if they don’t have a grasp on basic meter.

Am I feeling snarky today? Guess so.
