or Post: Amendments to the Code of the Brotherhood (CAP 89, 2008 Rev.Ed.).

As law students, one of the most important aspects before drafting new legislation is to do your due diligence. You have to be insane or a freaking genius (god-like) to draft legislation from scrap. Only a few have succeeded – Stephen the legendary draftmans of the Evidence Act (which is now used in over 4 jurisdictions), Macaulay who drafted the Indian Penal Code or Macaulay’s Code or the 1837 Indian Code, which numerous countries adopted. Even, these codes which were drafted from scrap couldn’t provide for all present and future possibilities (making life for law students every difficult)

No matter, I shall learn from these great draftsmen and not repeat their mistakes… So, this Act is based on the legendary ‘bro code’ created by the first decedents of Adam (obviously Eve had no role to play in its creation). A short legislative history;

The Bro Code is a living document – manifest in its 83 amendments – and as such is not yet publicly available in an unabridged volume. The original document is hused in a non-disclosed location, two stories beneath sea level in a vacuum-sealed bulletproof chamber.

Years ago, I set forth to compile and articulate the unspoken mores that exist between and among Bros the world over. While not intending to write a “Guide To Being a Bro,” if men should treat it as such and choose to pass this compendium of knowledge from generation to generation, I have little doubt it would bring a tear to my eye… but not out of it – that would be a violation of ARTICLE 77: “A Bro never cries.”

Overall, The Code of the Brotherhood would have;

Five Main sections:

1. Preamble

2. Part I: SacreD Obligations – Article 1-50

3. Part II: Emergency – Artcile 51-55

4 Part III: Boundary Limitations – Article 56- 89

5. Appendix

I have attached a few sections for your viewing pleasure;

  • Artcile 26(1) – “A bro will, in a timely manner, alert his bro to the existence of a girl fight.” A Bro must never hesitate before  communicating the possibility of fisticuffs between two humans of the female variety [[HENCEFORTH “GIRL FIGHT”]], in an effort to make possible and probable that another Bro or Bros can partake in observation.
  • Article 26(2) – Said Bro must use any and all methods of media distribution at his disposal, including but not limited to:
    • telecommunications,
    • elbow nudging,
    • fiber optics,
    • the express delivery services, and
    • postcards.
  • Artcile 26(3) – If an informed Bro is unable to witness the girl fight firsthand, the spotter Bro is responsible for documenting and relating details of the girl fight via pictures, video, or barring any other reasonable method, interpretive dance and/or pantomime
  • Draftsman’s intend
    • There is no guys who does like to see a girl fight…. some guys live their whole life with hopes that they may one day have a glimpse of a girl fight. Therefore, alerting your bro about a girl fight is most scared gift any bro can give to another bro.
    • A timely manner is open to interpretation based on the initial Bro’s viewing and processing of the potential feminine conflagration.
    • Tabling Bro obligations to witness a XX chromosomal scuffle is not only condoned, but encouraged, and in some cases, required. Please refer to the Brobligation rubric as elucidated in AMENDMENT 83: “The REALLY hot sister and other hump trumps.” * SEE ZaBroder film
  • ARTICLE 3: Chick Availability
    • If a girl falls into the following criteria, she is off limits forever until the end of time:
      • Was an ex-girlfriend.
      • Your friend specifically told you he wanted her.
      • Is you’re buddy’s sister.
    • However, if it’s your buddy’s cousin, well she’s up for grabs, and you’re welcome to rub it in his face for years to come.
  • Draftsman’s Intend
    • Great Civilizations have fallen & Bestest of Bros have killed each other because Article 3 was ever followed.
    • It must be remembered this is an absolute rule – there are NO exceptions – it is totally exclusionary in nature. A strict liability irrespective of knowledge by the bros or consent.
    • If you see any girl that falls into this category instantly turn away and RUN

I encourage all guys out there to check the full Code which is attached below….. I hope this Code would provide moral authority to your actions and strength the brotherhood.
