HPC COMMENTARY: LEGAL EFFICIENCY IS LIKE CAKE THESE DAYS. YOU CAN HAVE IT – AND EAT IT.

While two nations may be divided by the same language nothing divides the US and UK like the relative popularity of fruit cake. Giving someone a fruit cake gift in the US is, essentially, the equivalent of un-friending them on Facebook or blocking them on Twitter. It’s a clear statement that you (a) don’t like them or (b) you don’t really understand gifting. Don’t even get me started on the politics of re-gifting a fruit cake. Legal efficiency is a lot like cake. But it’s not a bad thing. Let’s unpack that.
