Bluebook, The - A Uniform System of Citation Easter Egg - Caddyshack Reference

For those lawyers, future lawyers, and law students out there, there's a funny egg in The Bluebook (the legal citation guide). As far as I can tell, all of the other citations in the book are legitimate, but on p.59 (R 10.2(d)), an example given is "Czervik v. The Flying Wasp." "Czervik" refers to "Al Czervik" (Rodney Dangerfield's character in Caddyshack), while "The Flying Wasp" refers to Judge Smails's boat, which Czervik sinks by dropping his anchor on it.

Many reference works use this technique to counter plagiarism. If you copy/paste e.g. from such a page, the error is a tipoff. Dictionaries often use this, but the eggs aren't noticed by casual users; too much information. :-) Good catch.
