Top definition
A clause in a contract, frequently buried in the fine print, that obligates the signer to fulfill an unacceptable condition, i.e. giving up your first born child. Sometimes such clauses are included to test whether the contract has been read by the client. Named for King Herod in the New Testament. British origin.
