LEGAL HUMOR

I collect lawyer jokes.

Someone smart once said, "you have to be able to laugh at yourself." OK, so he said it more than once, the point is, I have a small collection of lawyer jokes, and thought you may enjoy them, so here they are... (As I said, I love lawyer jokes, but some people don't, So I've included links to a few pages of non-legal humor. Hope you enjoy them.)

A secretary, a paralegal and a partner in a city law firm are walking through


a park on their way to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it


and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke. The Genie says, "I usually only


grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one. "Me first! Me first!" says


the secretary. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a


care in the world." Poof! She's gone. "Me next! Me next!" says the paralegal.


"I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse,


an endless supply of pina coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.


"You're next," the Genie says to the partner. The partner says,


"I want those two back in the office after lunch."

 

A doctor, an architect, and an attorney were dining at the country club one day, and the conversation turned to the subject of their respective dogs, which were apparently quite extraordinary. A wager was placed on who had the most intelligent dog.

The physician offered to show his dog first, and called to the parking lot, "Hippocrates, come!" Hippocrates ran in, and was told by the doctor to do his stuff. Hippocrates ran to the golf course and dug for a while, producing a number of bones. He dragged the bones into the country club, and assembled them into a complete, fully articulated human skeleton. The physician patted Hippocrates on the head, and gave him a cookie for his efforts.

The architect was only marginally impressed, and called for his dog, "Sliderule, come!" Sliderule ran in, and was told to do his stuff. The dog immediately chewed the skeleton to rubble, but reassembled the fragments into a scale model of the Taj Mahal. The architect patted his dog and gave him a cookie.

The attorney watched the other two dogs, and called "Bullshit, come!" Bullshit entered and was told to do his stuff. Bullshit immediately screwed the other two dogs, stole their cookies, auctioned the Taj Mahal replica to the other club members for his fee, and went outside to play golf.

Q: What do you get when you cross the Godfather with a lawyer?

A: An offer you can't understand

Q. Why to lawyers wear neckties?

A. To keep the foreskin from crawling up their chins.

A Dublin lawyer died in poverty and many barristers of the city sub- scribed to a fund for his funeral. The Lord Chief Justice of Orbury was asked to donate a shilling. "Only a shilling?" said the Justice, "Only a shilling to bury an attorney? Here's a guinea; go and bury 20 more of them."

"How can I ever thank you?" gushed a woman to Clarence Darrow, after he had solved her legal troubles.

"My dear woman," Darrow replied, "ever since the Phoenicians invented money there has been only one answer to that question."

The lawyer is standing at the gate to Heaven and St. Peter is listing his sins:

1) Defending a large corporation in a pollution suit where he knew they were guilty.

2) Defending an obviously guilty murderer because the fee was high.

3) Overcharging fees to many clients.

4) Prosecuting an innocent woman because a scapegoat was needed in a controversial case.

And the list goes on for quite awhile.

The lawyer objects and begins to argue his case. He admits all these things, but argues, "Wait, I've done some charity in my life also." St. Peter looks in his book and says, "Yes, I see. Once you gave a dime to a panhandler and once you gave an extra nickel to the shoeshine boy, correct?" The lawyer gets a smug look on his face and replies, "Yes." St. Peter turns to the angel next to him and says, "Give this guy 15 cents and tell him to go to hell."

A lawyer dies & meets St. Peter at the Pearly Gates...

Stammering in incredulity at his untimely demise, he grabs St Peter by the robes & insists there's been some kind of mistake.

"I'm too young to die!" he yells, "I'm only 38 years old!"

St. Peter takes the lawyer's hands off him, straightens his robe, & consults the Book of Life.

"I think I've found the problem," he says, "Judging by the number of hours you've billed, we thought you were 82."

Quotable Cops

The following were taken off of actual police car videos around the country.

#15 "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch out after you wear them awhile."

#14 "Take your hands off the car, and I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."

#13 "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

#12 "Can you run faster than 1,200 feet per second? In case you didn't know, that is the average speed of a 9mm bullet fired from my gun."

#11 "So you don't know how fast you were going. I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?"

#10 "Yes, Sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh .. did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?"

#9 "Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."

#8 "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"

#7 "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy, and step in monkey $#*!."

#6 "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

#5 "In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC."

#4 "Just how big were those two beers?"

#3 "No sir we don't have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we want."

#2 "I'm glad to hear the Chief of Police is a good personal friend of yours. At least you know someone who can post your bail."

And the best …

#1 "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? ... You're right, we don't. .... Sign here."
