"Counsel, your proposed remedy strikes this court as a little odd."

"How so, Your Honor?"

"Well, you're proposing we slap you on the wrist with... well, what exactly IS this thing?"

"They're Microsoft Standard Units(tm), Your Honor. We've embraced and extended the standard."

"So I see. In any case, this isn't a ruler just because you drew 100 marks on it."

"Binary, Your Honor."

"It figures. Counsel, please approach the bench. Thank you. Counsel, please bend over. I'm going to put this remedy back where it came from."
