Dear Chris,

What is habeas corpus? Apparently Joseph Smith used it a lot to get out of jail and stuff.

Man, you do NOT want to mess with a habeus corpus. Its the latin name for a rotting, Solanum infected, gangrenous body. Some people carry them around and will throw them at others as a means to revolt them and give them a chance to get away. I guess Joseph Smith carried a few spare ones to get out of a pinch. If you ever see a habeus corpus in the road or in someones backpack, the best advice I can give you is to turn around and run away.
Seriously, those things are nasty.

whatevs. Chris doesn't know. It means that the prisoner has the right to have proved that he is being help legally in front of a judge. or something like that.

Mom told me yesterday on the phone that Lisa is actually a habeus corpus. She didn't want anyone else to know, but I feel it is my duty to inform you all. Don't let her bite you or you will become one too.
If Lisa WAS a habeus corpus, don't you think she would try and play it off as some namby pamby writ employed to bring a person before a court to ensure that the party's imprisonment is not illegal? Of course she would.

Don't believe her.

And don't let her bite you.

Don't worry, Lisa. I believe you.


Just so long as you stay at a safe distance.
