Law humor: De minimis non curat lex

The latin phrase "de minimis non curat lex" means "the law does not concern itself with trifles."

Now you can take what you learned above and apply it to the following limerick:

There was a young lawyer named Rex.
Who was sadly deficient in sex.
Arraigned for exposure,
He said with composure,
"De minimis non curat lex."
