Miss Piggy
 If I give an orange to my friend,
 I say to him, "I give you this orange."

 If a lawyer does it, he says it this way:

     "Know all men by these presents that I hereby give, grant, bargain,
      sell, release, convey, transfer, and quitclaim all my right, title,
      interest, benefit, and use whatever in, of, and concerning this
      chattel, otherwise known as an orange, or citrus orantium, together
      with all the appurtenances thereto of skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds,
      and juice, to have and to hold the said orange together with its
      skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds, and juice, for his own use and behoof,
      to himself and his heirs in fee simple forever, free from all liens,
      encumbrances, easements, limitations, restraints, or conditions
      whatsoever, any and all prior deeds, transfers or other documents
      whatsoever, now or anywhere made to the contrary notwithstanding,
      with full power to bite, cut, suck, or otherwise eat the said
      orange or to give away the same with or without its skin, pulp, pip,
      rind, seeds, or juice."

The capacity of human beings to bore one another seems to be vastly
greater than that of any other animals.  Some of their most esteemed
inventions have no other apparent purpose, for example, the dinner
party of more than two, the epic poem, and the science of metaphysics.
