Tomorrow for evidence we're reading a case where a guy qualified as an expert witness by virtue of smoking a whole hell of a lot of weed.

And for Property, we have this little gem, wherein a lawyer traces title back as far as he can get:

"Gentlemen:
I am in receipt of your letter of the fifth of this month inquiring as to the state of title [of a piece of property in New Orleans] prior to the year 1803.
Please be advised that in the year 1803 the United States of America acquired the Territory of Louisiana from the Republic of France by purchase. The Republic of France previously acquired title from the Spanish Crown by conquest. Spain acquired title by virtue of the discoveries of one Christopher Columbus, a Genoese sailor who had been duly authorized to embark upon his voyage of discovery by Isabella, Queen of Spain. Before granting such authority, Isabella, a pious and cautious woman, obtained the sanction of His Holiness, the Pope. The Pope is the Vicar on earth of Jesus Christ, the only son and heir apparent of God. God made Louisiana."
