Cuban funds, woman “duped by spying spouse”?

I’ll admit it. My sense of humor–even given it has always been absurdist and occasionally black–has been swinging wildly lately, as if it were all by itself bi-polar.

The body in which the humor is contained is not bi-polar.

That, as a way of explaining why I’m finding this abstract from today’s New York Law Journal hilariously funny, intriguing, funny, wild, funny…


I care about you, dear readers, and I want you to share my happiness or, rather, the few moments in which I feel it. So:
