i want to clerk for this guy

A judge in a Texas bankruptcy court denied a motion for "being incomprehensible", then accompanied this justification with the following footnote, in which the judge quotes Billy Madison:

"Or, in the words of the competition judge to Adam Sandler's title character in the movie, 'Billy Madison,' after Billy Madison had responded to a question with an answer that sounded superficially reasonable but lacked any substance.
Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Deciphering motions like the one presented here wastes valuable chamber staff time, and invites this sort of footnote."

Edited to add: I just realized that the judge's name is Leif Garrett. That makes me want to clerk for him even more.
