drool-proof paper /n./ Documentation that has been
obsessively dumbed down, to the point where only a cretin
could bear to read it, is said to have succumbed to the
`drool-proof paper syndrome' or to have been `written on
drool-proof paper'. For example, this is an actual quote from
Apple's LaserWriter manual: "Do not expose your LaserWriter to
open fire or flame."
