Two West Virginia lawyers hired a secretary from a small town in the hills.
She was attractive, but it was obvious that she knew nothing about city life.
One attorney said to the other, “Mary is so young and pretty she might be
taken advantage of by some of those fast-talking city guys. Why don’t we teach
her what’s right and what’s wrong?”
“Great idea,” said the partner. You teach her what’s right.”

Bronze Rat

A tourist wanders into a back-alley antique shop in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Picking through the objects on display he discovers a detailed, life-sized bronze sculpture of a rat. The sculpture is so interesting and unique that he picks it up and asks the shop owner what it costs. “Twelve dollars for the rat, sir,” says the shop owner, “and a thousand dollars more for the story behind it.” “You can keep the story, old man,” he replies, “but I’ll take the rat.”

The transaction complete, the tourist leaves the store with the bronze rat under his arm. As he crosses the street in front of the store, two live rats emerge from a sewer drain and fall into step behind him. Nervously looking over his shoulder, he begins to walk faster, but every time he passes another sewer drain, more rats come out and follow him.

By the time he’s walked two blocks, at least a hundred rats are at his heels, and people begin to point and shout. He walks even faster, and soon breaks into a trot as multitudes of rats swarm from sewers, basements, vacant lots, and abandoned cars. Rats by the thousands are at his heels, and as he sees the waterfront at the bottom of the hill, he panics and starts to run for the bridge.

Making a mighty leap, he jumps up onto a light post, grasping it with one arm while he hurls the bronze rat into San Francisco Bay with the other, as far as he can heave it. Pulling his legs up and clinging to the light post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of rats surges over the breakwater into the sea, where they drown.

Shaken and mumbling, he makes his way back to the antique shop. “Ah, so you’ve come back for the rest of the story,” says the owner.

“No,” says the tourist, “but I was wondering if you have any bronze lawyers!”

No-one home

A lawyer cross-examined the adversary’s main witness. “You claim to have stopped by Mrs. Edwards house just after breakfast. Will you tell the jury what she said?””Objection, your honor,” shouted the other lawyer.There then followed a long argument between the lawyers as to whether the question was proper. Finally, after 45 minutes, the judge allowed it.”So,” the first lawyer continued, “Please answer the question: What did Mrs. Edwards say when you went to her house after breakfast on December 3rd?””Nothing,” said the witness. “No one was home.”

How Far Was It?

At a trial, an attorney was putting witnesses through an exacting
cross-examination, and was taking great delight into forcing witnesses to admit
that they did not remember every single detail of an automobile accident. While
the lawyer knew that no witness has a perfect memory, he had honed a skill in
exploiting minor inconsistencies and lapses of memory in order to challenge the
credibility of honest witnesses. After a series of scathing cross-examinations,
he was looking forward to his examination of yet another witness.

“Did you actually see the accident?” he asked.

The witness responded with a polite, “Yes, sir.”

“How far away were you when the accident happened?”

“I was Thirty-four feet, seven and three quarter�s inches away from the point
of collision.”

“Thirty-four feet, seven and three quarter inches?” the lawyer asked,
sarcastically, “Do you expect us to believe that your memory is so good, and
your sense of distance is so precise, that months after the accident you can
come into court and give that type of detail?”

The witness was unphased. “Sir, I had a hunch that some obnoxious, know-it-all
lawyer would ask me the distance, and would try to make it seem like I was lying
if I could not give an exact answer. So I got a tape measure, and measured out
the exact distance.”

What do you mean?””Well, I took a look one day and there wasn’t any money in either of them!”

A lawyer’s dog, running about unleashed, beelines for the local butcher shop
and steals a roast off the counter. The butcher goes to the lawyer’s office and
asks, “if a dog, running unleashed, steals a piece of meat from my store, do I
have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?” “Absolutely,”
the lawyer responded. The butcher immediately shot back, “Good! You owe me $7.99
for the roast your dog stole from me this morning.” The lawyer, without a word,
writes the butcher a check for $7.99. A few days later, the butcher, browsing
through his mail, finds an envelope from the lawyer. The contents read
“Consultation: $25.00.”

Czechs and Lawyers

A lawyer asked a Czechoslovakian friend of his to go hunting one day. While strolling thru the woods a grizzly bear attacked them. While the bear ate the Czech… the lawyer managed to escape. He ran to the forest rangers cabin.

After telling the ranger what had happenned… the ranger said… ‘You’ll have to go with me and identify the bear.’ The ranger grabbed his rifle and the lawyer followed him back into the woods. It didn’t take long to find the bear… but he was with a female bear at the time.

The ranger took aim… and asked the lawyer: ‘Which one is it… the male or the female?’.

The lawyer said the male. Then all of a sudden .. BANG! The female bear fell to the ground and died. The lawyer perplexed and confused asked the ranger: ‘Why did you shot the female? I said it was the male.’

To which the ranger replied: ‘Do you really expect me to believe: a “lawyer” saying… the Czech is in the male?’
