‘I do not like eggs in the file…not in any style’

 

The following was issued by US Magistrate Judge James Muirhead as an order in response to a NH State Prison inmate who had mailed a hard-boiled egg along with his court filings suing the NH Corrections Department for allegedly denying his requests for kosher meals. The order in verse was published in NH newspapers on Sept. 21, 2007.

 

No fan I am
Of the egg at hand.
Just like no ham
On the kosher plan.

This egg will rot
I kid you not.
And stink it can
This egg at hand.

There will be no eggs at court
To prove a clog in your aort.
There will be no eggs accepted.
Objections all will be rejected.

From this day forth
This court will ban
hard-boiled eggs of any brand.

And if you should not understand
The meaning of the ban at hand
Then you should contact either Dan,
the deputy clerk, or my clerk Jan.

I do not like eggs in the file.
I do not like them in any style.
I will not take them fried or boiled.
I will not take them poached or broiled.
I will not take them soft or scrambled
Despite an argument well rambled.

No fan I am
Of the egg at hand.
Destroy that egg!
Today! today!
Today I say! Without delay!  
 

 

 

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
