Well, consider this. We have a couple of hundred years (maybe more?) of
case law discussing when a contract should be unenforceable due to
illegality.

But ignoring all that case law, you went instead to answers.com and
merriam-webster.com to prove your point.

I was sardonically pointing out that you quote the authorities you want
to quote, not the authorities most relevant to the issue.  Now for
obvious reasons I don't expect our friend amicus_curious to cite any
case law.  But from you, Rjack, I had expected better.
