Attorney humor

Recently I had a discovery discussion with a fellow associate (fa)

fa: Has anyone at at our opponent's deposition explained why their User Guide is designated AEO?
G-man: No, but I can hazard a guess: they only give it out to their users, who have probably signed a licensing and confidentiality agreement, not to the general public.
fa: That should be "confidential" then, not AEO.
G-man: I'm not 100% familiar with all the designations and what they should be in attorney land. The only ones I know are Confidential, Secret, Top Secret, and some shit I can't tell you, because I signed papers stating that I forgot.
