Three lawyers’ tongues

It being All Hallow’s Eve, I was reminded by this post on Lallands Peat Worrier‘s blog about a line in Robert Burns’ Tam o’ Shanter of some relevance to the legal profession.  Tam is peering into the haunted Alloway Kirk and spies, among other horrors:

Three lawyers’ tongues, turn’d inside out,
Wi’ lies seam’d like a beggar’s clout;

A timely admonition, if one were needed, about the importance of honesty in business?

    I not to mention my pals came looking through the best things from the blog then instantly I got a terrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the blog owner for those strategies. All the ladies came for that reason joyful to study them and have now surely been enjoying those things. We appreciate you being really thoughtful and then for going for varieties of high-quality resources most people are really wanting to be informed on. My personal honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
