But I want more ponies...

In my reading for Family Law today, I ran across a very entertaining tidbit. In fashioning child support awards in marriage dissolutions, courts are guided by the "Three Ponies Rule." The rule states that no child needs more than three ponies. If the award for child support would allow purchasing four ponies fo the child, then the trial court has abused its discretion.

I didn't know she had a pony. How was I to know she had a pony? Who figures an immigrant's going to have a pony? Do you know what the odds are on that? I mean, in all the pictures I saw of immigrants on boats coming into New York harbor, I never saw one of them sitting on a pony. Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense.. am I wrong?

Little known fact, that episode of Seinfeld was written by Justice John Marshall.
