If laws were really written this way...

...most people now making their living as lawyers would have to find another line of work.
"Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure."

— Thomas Jefferson
