"gud ved hvor mange af dem der bestiller noget?"

I worked for a company based in Houston that had board members from way back who were, basically, good old boys. One of them was shown around the shiny offices with the full occupancy and came upon the legal department, which was well known to be vastly bloated. His reported words were "What the Hell are all these people doing, surely we can't be being sued by that many people?"

Shortly after it was discovered that it was actually more economic to engage lawyers on an as needed basis.
