What if the poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' was written in legalese?

This is what happens when I go off the grid for a few days during the holidays; I miss some good stories and that are now stale.  But maybe you can still make use of this in your legal writing classes by telling students you didn't discover it until after they left for the Christmas break. 

This post from the TaxProf Blog shows what would happen if "Twas the Night Before Christmas" was written in legalese:
