when practicing law, I was always mildly amused by phrases like:

> in legal writing, people do [thing]

That is meant to contrast "legal writing" with "other writing", but a part of me always read it as contrasting "legal writing" with "illegal writing".

These days, the same part of me is mildly amused every time I read a phrase like

> In functional languages, people do $THING

@codesections Some functional programming fans would agree that others do dysfunctional programming. 😀
