For all those who, like myself, have to translate patents, those most boring and most nauseating of all texts, I looked for a patent parody - nothing in all the web! So I wrote one myself. I apologize for the four-letter words: my poor phantasy wrought forth nothing better. http://schmurr.tripod.com/martin/id11.html
