Thursday Thirteen (17th)

Maybe you need to pick a new lawyer.

A Texas attorney, realizing he was on the verge of unleashing a stupid question, interrupted himself and said, "Your Honor, I'd like to strike the next question."

1. During your initial consultation he tries to sell you Amway.

2. He tells you that his last good case was a "Budweiser."

3. When the prosecutors see who your lawyer is, they high-five each other.

4. He picks the jury by playing "duck-duck-goose."

5. During the trial you catch him playing poker on his cell phone.

6. He tells you “My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of good judgment.”

7. He giggles every time he hears the word "briefs."

8. Just before he says "Your Honor," he makes those little quotation marks in the air with his fingers.

9. He frequently gives juror No. 4 an obscene gesture.

10. He places a large "No Refunds" sign on the defense table.

11. The sign in front of his law office reads "Practicing Law Since 2:25 PM."

12. Whenever his objection is overruled, he tells the judge, "Whatever."

13. Just before trial starts he whispers, "The judge is the one with the little hammer, right?"

There are so many ways to poke fun at nearly any profession...what's really scary is when you see people in those professions acting out those behaviors. :D

Oh.My.Word. I know this guy. It's my neighbor (and I'm not kidding here). Scary! Yes, my neighbor is a lawyer (un-employed lawyer for over a year now) and he fits the bill on most if not all of those. Too funny. I'm copying your list and e-mailing to my hubby. He'll get a kick out of this. Thanks for sharing and I noticed that yesterday was your Dad's birthday. Happy birthday Dad!

And I too love a good lawyer joke.

Here's one:

I have some good news and some bad news, the good news is that a bus full of lawyers went over a cliff. The bad news? Three empty seats.

That's almost too mean to be funny but I still chuckle nonetheless.
