SODDI defence
 n.— «“So you’re using the old Soddi defence, are you?” the Crown Attorney asked the accused on cross-examination. “I’m not familiar with that term,” said the prisoner at the bar. “Is that “Saudi,” as in “Saudi Arabia?’” “No,” interjected the judge, “it’s S-O- D-D-I—as in “Some Other Dude Done It!”» —“Defence benefits from creative thinking” by Peter V. MacDonald Toronto Star (Can.) Dec. 22, 1991. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
