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

Real claim possible ;) Sep 9, 2009



(...) four, support columns (56-59), each with five hooks (60-79) at the basis; (...)

With this part of your patent parody, you have at least the basis for a "real" patent claim....
