Articling Student: "Do I need a club?"
Big Time Lawyer: "No, I mean the little red seals."

Eating wax seals is the subject of an Ontario Court of Appeal decision; in that case, the Defendant tore off and swallowed a portion of a document that bore his signature and seal. In his dissenting judgment, Laskin J.A. wrote:
"Nor does anything turn on the defendant's naive
belief that proof of his liability would be effectively forestalled by his
tearing off and swallowing the portions of the document bearing his signature
and that of the subscribing witness."
