If it does not involve the words, (1) knee, (2) deep, (3) in, and (4) pussy, you lose just like the rest of us.

Those commas should really be semicolons. Just saying.

If you at this coffee shop, I would bludgeon you to death with my laptop... no wait my con law book--so much heavier.

If I wanted to be grammatically or stylistically correct, I would have typed, "the phrase 'knee deep in pussy."

I'll mail $100 to anyone who can get the phrase "knee deep in pussy" in their brief.

The negative performance on the brief would far outweigh the sleight bump in quality of booze consumed after the brief.

Surely there's someone with an ungraded LRW that'll take the cash?

How would such a person prove he and/or she inserted the phrase in question into the brief?

Also, I was thinking about honor code violations.

Post scan of the marked-up copy returned by the professor? That might be worth more than $100.

How would you prove that the person marking up the brief was your prof. Too many loopholes in your offer.

I'm willing to take a bit of it on honor. Maybe an oath from a classmate would do (subject to verification if I am able).

Do I have to meet every element to not be a loser?

If so, I lose, because, "I am on my knees crying in my house being a pussy b/c I am so getting owned by this brief."

According to witnesses, defendant was "knee deep in pussy" when the police executed their warrant and kicked in D's door, knee deep in pussy being slang for making meth.

Do you think the prof. would look up the cite?

For something that seems to stand out like that, probably.

But I need that $100 for transferring. Such a dilemma.

The two I had to do were due on Friday.

I didn't sleep for 24 hours before that.

I'm therefore taking the whole weekend to recover.

FWIW, I think a busy prof would never bother to look up the citation. Do it! It's totally worth it for $100.

Mine was due on the 1st. Oral arguments were this morning. I'm just now starting to feel calm enough that my friends can trust me around sharp implements. I know my brief was full of fail; I really feel like falling on a sword just now.
