Greatest footnotes of all times

There are some great footnotes out there - and I am not just talking about the seminal due process footnote in United States v. Carolene Products, 304 U.S. 144, 152 n.4 (1938).

For those of you who have yet to see these gems, you absolutely must check out the greatest footnotes in modern jurisprudence:

United States v. Murphy, 406 F.3d 857, 859 n.1 (7th Cir. 2005).*

In re King, No. 05-56485-c (U.S. Bankr. Ct. W.D. Tex. Feb. 21, 2006) (order denying motion for incomprehensibility) (note 1).**

*Sorry there is no link to this one, but if you aren't in a position to look this up, you probably wouldn't appreciate it anyhow...

** Thanks to "Nye!" at YCGAFBA for this one
