An ill wind

So I'm in the lift with a bunch of cats clutching a crisp new volume of the ALJRs (those nasty unauthorised Reports that don't curry the professional favour of an authorised CLR, say) when a titter erupts from the lips of a colleague behind my shoulder.

"Gassy" he says, snorting with laughter.

I'm about to take umbrage when he stabs an impertinent finger at one of the cases listed on the cover:

Gassy v R [2008] HCA 18; (2008) 82 ALJR 838

I make a pretense of being mature and unamused.

Is kind of funny, but.

There are some unfortunate names in this world, just as there are unfortunate professions.
