Depending on how I answer a question about an all-you-can eat Buffett
I either get the same response as pnh or this:

YOU ARE RULE 15!

You're a very helpful rule! You allow the
attorney to amend their complaint once as a matter of
course at any time before the answer is
filed, and also allow amendments in other
cases. If a claim relates back to the
original transaction or occurrence outlined
in the complaint, you can amend the
complaint, even though the statute of
limitations has run. Like a good friend,
you're always there to help out in a bind.

I had to be different:

YOU ARE RULE 20(a)!

You are Rule 20, an important part of the Federal Rules' policy of permissive joinder. You are designed specifically to allow as many
parties in an action as can be tried efficiently, and you'll include someone as long as there is some factual overlap between
a claim involving them and the rest of the case at hand. You are popular, out-going, and are never far from friends. However,
your overly gregarious nature and magnanimous approach do make things a bit crowded--you're the reason that lawsuits are often cluttered with innumerable parties and even more numerous claims for relief. Still, despite the crowds that you attract, you can't argue with the efficiency of getting everything done at once!

YOU ARE RULE 8(a)!

You are Rule 8, the most laid back of all the

Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. While your

forefather in the Federal Rules may have been

a stickler for details and particularity, you

have clearly rebelled by being pleasant and

easy-going. Rule 8 only requires that a

plaintiff provide a short and plain statement

of a claim on which a court can grant relief.

While there is much to be lauded in your

approach, your good nature sometimes gets you

in trouble, and you often have to rely on

your good friend, Rule 56, to bail you out.
