A Hex on Lawyers!

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
a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you
began the autopsy?
WITNESS: No.
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.

I see blog interviewer guy is making the rounds. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my place. I have loved this joke and it's one of my favorites in the "I hate lawyers" category.
