Send Us A Joke
The local charity realized that it never received a donation from the city’s most successful lawyer…
So a volunteer paid the lawyer a visit in his lavish office. The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, “Our research shows that even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you don’t give a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give something back to your community?”
The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, “First, did your reserach also show you that my mother is dying after a long painful illness, and that she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?”
Embarrassed, the rep mumbles, “Uh…no, I didn’t know that.”
“Secondly,” says the lawyer, “Did it show that my brother, a disabled Veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?”
The stricken rep begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again.
“Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sister’s husband died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?”
The humiliated rep, completely beaten, says, “I’m so sorry. I had no idea.”
And the lawyer says, “So, if I don’t give them any money, what makes you think I’d give any to you?”
A lawyer and the pope were both killed in an accident…
The two were in line to see St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter asked the lawyer his name and looked it up in his book.
He then asked the Pope for his name and looked it up in his book also.
“Now, if you will come with me, I will show you your eternal dwellings,” said St. Peter.
They walked along the clouds and came to a huge mansion with all sorts of lavish trappings.
St. Peter turned to the lawyer and told him this was to be his house.
The Pope, knowing how important he was to the church could hardly imagine what his house would be like.
St. Peter and the Pope continued on to a small, beat-up wooden shack.
St. Peter told the Pope that this would be his dwelling.
The Pope, shocked, said to St. Peter, “Just a minute! That other guy was a lawyer and he gets a mansion! I was the head of the Roman Catholic church, and this is all the reward I get?”
St. Peter looked at the Pope and said, “True, you have done great things. But we have lots of Popes in Heaven, and that guy was the first lawyer ever to make it up here.”
A Lawyer Avoids A Speeding Ticket…
Lawyer: Is there a problem, officer?
Officer: Sir, you were speeding.
Lawyer: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see y our license, please?
Lawyer: I would give it to you but I don’t have one.
Officer: Don’t have one?
Lawyer: Lost it four years ago for drunk driving.
Officer: I see… Can I see your vehicle registration papers, please?
Lawyer: I can’t do that.
Officer: Why not?
Lawyer: I stole this car.
Officer: Stole it?
Lawyer: Yes, and I killed the owner.
Officer: You what?
Lawyer: Killed the owner, I had to…self-defense. Otherwise, he would call the police and I would be in jail.
The Officer looks at the Lawyer and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes five police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
Senior Officer: Sir, could you step out of your vehicle, please!
The lawyer steps out of the vehicle.
Lawyer: Is there a problem sir?
Senior Officer: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and killed the owner.
Lawyer: Killed the owner?
Senior Officer: Is this your car, sir?
Lawyer: Yes, here are the registration papers.
The officer is quite stunned.
Senior Officer: One of my officers claims that you don’t have a driver’s license.
The lawyer digs into his pocket takes out his license and hands it to the officer.
The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.
Senior Officer: Thank you, sir, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you killed the owner.
Lawyer: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.[/text_divider]
A Lawyer Buys A Fancy New Car…
A lawyer had just bought a fancy new car and was eager to show it off to his colleagues when an eighteen wheeler came out of nowhere and took off the driver’s side door with him standing right there. “NOOO!” he screamed because he knew that no matter how good a mechanic tried to fix it, it would never be the same. Finally, a cop came by, and the lawyer ran up to him yelling, “MY BENTLEY DOOR WAS JUST RUINED BY SOME FOOLISH DRIVER!!!”
“You’re a lawyer aren’t you?” asked the policeman.
“Yes, I am, but what does that have to do with my car?!?!” the lawyer asked.
“HA! You lawyers are so materialistic. All you care about is your possessions. I bet you didn’t even notice that your left arm is missing did you?” the cop said.
The lawyer looked down at his side and exclaimed, “MY ROLEX!”[/text_divider]
For Hire: Karate Lawyer…
This Lawyer Is Thorough…
The attorney tells the accused, “I have some good news and some bad news.”
“What’s the bad news?” asks the accused.
“The bad news is, your blood is all over the crime scene, and the DNA tests prove you did it.”
“What’s the good news?”
“Your cholesterol is 130.”
Guilty of Annoyance
A defendant isn’t happy with how things are going in court, so he gives the judge a hard time.
Judge: “Where do you work?”
Defendant: “Here and there.”
Judge: “What do you do for a living?”
Defendant: “This and that.”
Judge: “Take him away.”
Defendant: “Wait; when will I get out?”
Judge: “Sooner or later.”
The Case of The Imaginary Dogs
My niece was dragged into court by a neighbor who complained about her barking dogs. At one point, the judge asked the neighbor a question. The neighbor didn’t reply. “Sir, are you going to answer me?”
The neighbor leaped to his feet. “Are you talking to me?” he asked. “Sorry; I can’t hear a darn thing.”
The case was dismissed.
