Halbig and King in a simple parable

Diane says to Jack:  "Don't go outside! It's raining cats and dogs."

Jack goes outside, and Diane finds out. She confronts him: "Jack! I told you not to go outside!" "But the weather cleared up," Jack responds, and Diane is satisfied.

Several days later, a conservative think tank files suit against Jack for lawlessly violating the plain meaning of "Don't go outside!"
