It's Just Fun To Say

If there is a case that is more fun to say than Helicopteros Nacionales de Colombia v. Hall, I haven't found it.

Especially if you roll the "r" in Helicopter-r-r-r-r-os (I know it shouldn't be rolled because it isn't an "rr", but that doesn't make it any less fun to r-r-r-r-roll... r-r-r-remember-r-r R-r-ruffls have R-r-r-idges?)

You should have heard Fuentes do that last semester... now that guy can roll his R's. And getting the appropriate pronunciation was quality - though the rest of us just looked like posers when we tried to say it.

God I miss that guy.

Yeah, see, in the distant reaches of my memory the name of that case is spoken in Prof. Cooper's voice, and that's just not so exciting.

My prof pronounces it as only an old white man could: Heeley-cop-tear-ohs.

We spent a great deal of time on that case last year. The other night, I had a dream I was riding in a helicopter, but everyone was calling them HelicopTEROS. That was when I realized that law school has finally made me insane.
