With Law Ball arriving Thursday week, it seems prudent to print the MLS Law Ball Form Guide.
Barring a natural disaster, ‘Thrift Shop’ will be played at least once: 1.01-1
Someone will throw up in the ballroom, in the bathroom, and on the bus: 2-1
Some first year will be denied access to the after-party, and use legal jargon like ‘a writ of mandamus’ or quote irrelevant cases like Australian Woollen Mills to convince the bouncer: 4-1
Someone decides to be THAT PERSON and come in tails and a top hat: 4.20-1
There will be at least one table of commerce kids, who are slowly trying to infiltrate law school, first through our library and now through law ball: 5-1 Complete
People complaining that there should be entrée and not dessert: 120-1
One of the lawyers on the sponsor’s table will do a karaoke performance of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’: 175-1
‘Drinking at law ball’ will be a valid excuse for special consideration for the optional Trusts exam the following day: 250-1
The entire law ball will be visiting Revolver after leaving the after party: 466-1
Students realise that they don’t need alcohol to have a good night, and decide to get on the waters instead: 1,450,211-1
Author’s tip of the day:
This pick goes out to a member of law school who has a penchant for removing his shirt at big law school events. Words with his owner, who has recently re- turned from the Canadian racing circuit, suggested that he may be frustrated for a run with his barrier draw. With a few drinks in him and coming in with some good form from End of Exams last year, this bolter may be a chance.
Lewis Cohen getting his kit off: 8-1
Omen bet of the day:
18 April is the day Kourtney Kardashian was born. Kourtney is the sister of the famous-for-not-much Kim Kardashian, who is now pregnant by hip hop legend Kanye West. Thus, with the betting gods clearly trying to tell us something, have a little flutter on the last song of the evening.
Last song to be played at Peninsula to be ‘N****** in Paris’.12-1
Good luck everybody. Get excited for one of the best nights on the social calendar at law school, and I hope to see everyone there next week!
