Yeah...sure I understand that lawyers only have the noble intention of protecting their clients by 'drafting an all encompassing force majeure clause which can be used to cover any and all deficiencies !!!' but can't the same purpose be achieved by drafting it in plain english which human beings can understand instead of resorting to legalese (herein after referred to as legal mumbo jumbo)?

'The minute you read something and you can't understand it, you can be sure it was written by a lawyer. Then, if you give it to another lawyer to read and he don't know just what it means, then you can be sure it was drawn up by a lawyer.(see I always suspected even lawyers don't always understand what the write) If its in a few words and is plain, and understandable only one way, it was written by a non-lawyer.'
~Will Rogers

n this legal mumbo jumbo is often leads to situations like

'~Judge: Are you the defendant?

Defendant: Nope, I'm the guy who stole the chickens.

~True Courtroom Dialog:
Lawyer: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice that I sent to your attorney?
Witness: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.'

In order to understand the legal mumbo jumbo refer to the legal glossary in the post that follows.
