How the U.S. Code came to be

Jump to Comments

If you have an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of typewriters, you will eventually get Hamlet.

If you have one monkey with a typewriter, you will quickly get the U.S. Code.

I thought of this while listening to Henry Hazlitt destroy John Maynard Keynes’s General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money on  I originally thought of the joke in reference to the General Theory, but since that’s an obscure reference, I decided to apply it to the United States Code instead.  Either would be fitting.
