You are correct, sir, and win the prize!

Oh, right, the prize:  I'll explain "IANAL.  TINLA.  YADA."  It's part
of a running gag about interminable disclaimer notices.  

IANAL:  You're giving an opinion on a legal issue, but want to make sure
you're not seen as giving legal advice, and therefore you're warning
people that I Am Not A Lawyer.

TINLA:   Sometimes appended to the foregoing as a belt-and-suspenders
measure, to stress that therefore This Is Not Legal Advice.

YADA:  Yet Another Disclaimer Added.

Cheers,                                     Ceci n'est pas une pipe:   |
