Lemony Snicket on Law Books

A paragraph so delightful that it had to be shared:

“There are many, many types of books in the world, which makes good sense, because there are many types of people, and everybody wants to read something different … But one type of book that practically no one likes to read is a book about the law. Books about the law are notorious for being very long, very dull, and very difficult to read. This is one reason many lawyers make heaps of money. The money is an incentive … to read long, dull, and difficult books.”
