Rorschach Test

The British Parliament is full of quirks, and one that I find rather charming involves the names given to particular parliaments that were notable for some reason.  My favorite name is the “Lack-Learning, Unlearned, or Dunces Parliament,” which met in 1404 and (by command of the Crown) stipulated that “no lawyers should be returned as Members.”

Whether you think the name or the stipulation makes more sense tells you a lot about how you think.
