    How did the sharp-eyed legal team hired by the Board fail to notice that?
    In the normal course of things contracts are reviewed after any changes or additions are made and all parties must sign off on the changes.
    A couple of other clauses that were passed over are;
    Subsection B, paragraph 3, which states that Dr. Cox is entitled to free Snickers bars from the first floor vending machine and Subsection E, paragraph 11 which states that Dr. Cox’s car will be washed, every Saturday, by high school cheerleaders.
