Yup, it’s true, it’s done! So, you can expect some quality writing from me very soon. In the meantime, here’s a very cute little “law exam” remake of David after the Dentist. If you haven’t seen David after the Dentist, watch it too; it’s pretty cute.
Here’s David after his First Exam – a very accurate portrayal of how it feels to come out of a first year law school exam:
I think this one is going to become a classic. I like it because it makes it look like I got a higher LSAT score than I really did … to be fair, I don’t think many of my classmates at University of Ottawa are insecure overachievers (if anything we’re over-confident over-achievers).

I thought it was a bit of a clever joke … you know, “just for fun, for a laugh a hahaha!” but it’s from 1969. Did people have my sense of humour in 1969?
Anyway, here it is. Listen to the lyrics. I’ve pasted them below. If anybody has an insight (into the song, or humour in 1969 …), please share!
You talk like Marlene Dietrich

I wanted to write a little “What Law School is Like” blurb in honour of my impending exams, but was thrilled to find this video instead (thanks Jaime for sharing!)
