I tend not to post jokes on the blog, but I had to upload this. Lawyers are not as daft as you think, though - anyone who can receive their charge-out rates is pretty clever in my opinion!
This, I believe, is a true transcript from a court case in the States.
ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you
began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: It is possible that he could have been practising law somewhere.
