The 463d anniversary of Jack Cade's rebellion, the prompt for the most famous lawyer jape of all time, infra. And as good a time as any to record that it's really a compliment.
Bada boom. So Shakespeare, Henry VI Part 2, Act 4, scene 2, 71–77, and lawyers have been to catch up with it ever since. I do think they could use a more effective publicist, though.Cade:
I thank you, good people—there shall be no money; all shall eat
and drink on my score, and I will apparel them all in one livery,
that they may agree like brothers, and worship me their lord.
The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
