In Re Hardy (Cal. Supreme Ct. - July 26, 2007)

You know the California Supreme Court isn't filled with twenty-somethings from San Diego when the following line -- in the middle of an 84-page opinion -- requires a footnote:

"The four then returned to the Vose Street apartments around 10:00 p.m. to 'party' and use cocaine. They also used a beer bong."

The footnote appears at the end, and explains that a beer bong is “a funnel-type device which enables the user to pour beer directly down his throat and into his stomach.”

I love that this fact ostensibly needs explanation.
