What a fascinating spectacle…
How to define in law
A social occasion?
Can you defend your gathering
Was it a party
Was it a dinner
Was it a work meeting
Did you play Hungry Hippos?
When does a meeting
Become a party
And when does a party
Become a meeting
Therein lies the built-in, implicit need
For discretion and subjective judgement
But that doesn’t hold up in a court!
So, if we are really going to do this
Why not simply argue
Why your party was a work meeting
You were confused
Because, after all
For persuasive evidence of that…
Just point to the prime minister himself
And those who wrote the laws!
Thus, by their ridiculous actions
The whole premise breaks down
And we are left with
The interesting yet catastrophically-absurd navel-gazing thought experiment!
Good evening and welcome…
Come on in!
