Lawyer Humor
Q: What do you call a thousand lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean?
A: A good start!
Q: Why won't sharks devour lawyers?
A: Professional courtesy.
A lawyer and the Pope die on the same day and go up to heaven. St. Peter checks them in, and an angel comes by in a golden chariot to take them to their new quarters. They ride along for a while through beautiful heavenly scenery, and pull up in front of a lovely English cottage with a thatched roof and a rose trellis. The angel turns around in his seat and says to the Pope, "I hope you like your new quarters."

"Oh, it's beautiful," says the Pope, and he goes on in.

The chariot moves off and the lawyer notices that the neighborhood is getting fancier and fancier. Eventually they pull in front of a magnificent alabaster mansion, with thoroughbred horses grazing on the expansive lawns, a Rolls Royce and a Ferrari in the portico. "Hope you like it," the angel says.

“Like it? I'm stunned,” says the lawyer.

"Why, is there anything wrong?"

"No, no, of course not -- just the opposite. The place we left the Pope off was beautiful, but this is just unbelievable. I don't get it."

"Oh, that's easy," says the angel. "We've had plenty of Popes up here before, but you're the first lawyer."

A lawyer dies and shows up at the pearly gates. St. Peter greets him and they sit down together to do the required paperwork. At one point St. Peter is looking through the lawyer's official heavenly dossier, and he says, “Oh, congratulations, I see you qualify for the better grade housing we have up here.”

"Oh, really?" says the lawyer. "Why is that?"

St. Peter replies, "Well, the Big Guy has a rule that anybody who lived to be more than 100 was obviously leading a virtuous life on earth, so it's appropriate for that person to spend eternity in the best possible quarters."

"But that doesn't make sense," says the lawyer. "I died of a heart attack at age 58."

"That's impossible," says St Peter, looking at the lawyer's dossier. "According to your time records, you have to be at least 182 years old."

BUNGEE-JUMPING

Al, the lawyer, and Joe, the loan officer, are bungee-jumping one day.

Al says to Joe, "You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico."

Joe thinks this is a great idea and provides financing. Then, they buy everything they’ll need: a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc. Al obtains the necessary permits to operate, etc. They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the square.

As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work. When they finish, there is such a crowd they decide it is a good idea to give a demonstration.

Al, the lawyer, being quite adventurous, decided to jump. He bounces at the end of the cord, but when he comes back up Joe notices that he has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Joe isn't able to catch him, and he falls again, bounces and comes back up again. This time, he is bruised and bleeding. Again Joe misses him. Al falls again and bounces back up. This time he comes back pretty messed up-he's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious.

Luckily, Joe finally catches him this time and says, "What happened? Was the cord too long?"
Barely able to speak, Al gasps, "No, the cord was fine, but what's a pinata?"

A defendant in a lawsuit involving large sums of money was saying to his lawyer, "if I lose this case, I'll be ruined."

"It's in the judge's hands now," said the lawyer.

"Would it help if I sent the judge a box of cigars?" asked the defendant.

"Oh no!" said the lawyer. "This judge is a stickler for ethical behavior. A stunt like that would prejudice him against you. He might even find you in contempt of court. In fact, you should not even smile at the judge."

With the course of time, the judge rendered a decision in favor of the defendant. As the defendant left the courthouse, he said to his lawyer, "Thanks for the tip about the cigars. It worked."

"I'm sure we would have lost the case if you'd sent them," said the lawyer.

"But I did send them," said the defendant.

"What?? You did?"

"Yes, That's how we won the case."

"I don't understand," said the lawyer.

"It's easy. I sent the cheapest cigars that I could find to the judge, but enclosed the plaintiff's business card..."

Four guys are driving cross-country: one is from Maine, one is from Vermont, one from New Hampshire, and one from Massachusetts.

A while down the road, the man from Maine starts to pull potatoes from his bag and throw them out the window. The man from New Hampshire turns to him and asks, "What the hell are you doing?"

The man from Maine says, "Man, we have so many of these damned things laying around on the ground. I'm sick of looking at them."

A few miles down the road, the man from Vermont begins pulling bottles of maple syrup from his bag and proceeds to throw them out the window. The man from New Hampshire asks, "What are you doing that for?"

The man from Vermont replies, "Man, we have so many of these damned things in Vermont, and I'm sick of looking at them."

Inspired by the others, the man from New Hampshire opens the car door and pushes the man from Massachusetts out.

A man walking along the beach one day finds a bottle. He rubs it and, sure enough, out popped a genie.

"I will grant you three wishes," said the genie. "But there is a catch."

"What catch?" the man asked. The genie replied, "Every time you make a wish, every lawyer in the world will receive double the wish you were granted."

"Well, I can live with that! No problem!" replied the elated man.

"What is your first wish?" asked the genie. "Well, I've always wanted a Ferrari!"

POOF! A Ferrari appeared in front of the man. "Now every lawyer in the world has TWO Ferraris," said the genie. "Next wish?"

"I'd love a million dollars," replied the man. POOF! One million dollars appeared at his feet.

"Now every lawyer in the world has TWO million dollars," said the genie. "Well, that's okay, as long as I've got my million," replied the man.

"What is your third and final wish?"

The man thought long and hard, and finally said, "Well, you know, I've always wanted to donate a kidney!"

Firemen and paramedics frantically work to remove an attorney from his demolished car, which was just involved in a head on collision. "Oh ... my Mercedes, my poor Mercedes ... oh..." the attorney kept repeating through his pain.

"Look, fella," said the paramedic, "Quit worrying so much about your car, your entire arm has been severed below the elbow and you could bleed to death!"

As the attorney looks down to see his arm missing, he begins whimpering, "My Rolex, my poor Rolex ... oh….”

A man was sent to hell for his sins. As he was being taken to his place of eternal torment, he passed a room where a lawyer was having an intimate encounter with a beautiful young woman.
"What a rip-off," the man muttered. "I have to roast for all eternity, and that lawyer gets to spend it with a beautiful woman."

Jabbing the man with his pitchfork, the escorting demon snarled, "Who are you to question that woman's punishment?"

The local United Way office realized that it had never received a donation from the town's most successful lawyer. A local volunteer calls to solicit his donation, saying, "our research shows that even though your annual income is over a million dollars, you do not give one penny to charity! Wouldn't you like to give back to your community through The United Way?"

The lawyer thinks for a moment and says: "First, did your research show that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and has huge medical bills far beyond her ability to pay?"
Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, "Uh, no."

"Secondly, that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?" The stricken United Way rep begins to stammer an apology but is cut off.

"Thirdly, that my sister's husband died in a dreadful traffic accident", the lawyers voice rising in indignation, "leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children?" The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, says simply, "I had no idea."

The lawyer then says, “...and if I don't give any money to THEM, why should I give any to you?”

An old man was on his death bed. He wanted badly to take all his money with him. He called his priest, his doctor and his lawyer to his bedside. "Here's $30,000 cash to be held by each of you. I trust you to put this in my coffin when I die so I can take all my money with me."

At the funeral, each man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, the priest suddenly broke into tears and confessed that he had only put $20,000 into the envelope because he needed $10,000 for a new baptistery. "Well, since we're confiding in each other," said the doctor, "I only put $10,000 in the envelope because we needed a new machine at the hospital which cost $20,000."

The lawyer was aghast. "I'm ashamed of both of you," he exclaimed. "I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, it held my personal check for the full $30,000."

A grade school teacher was asking students what their parents did for a living. "Tim, you be first," she said. "What does your mother do all day?" Tim stood up and proudly said, "She's a doctor." "That's wonderful. How about you, Amie?" Amie shyly stood up, scuffed her feet and said, "My father is a mailman." "Thank you, Amie," said the teacher. "What about your father, Billy?" Billy proudly stood up and announced, "My daddy plays piano in a whorehouse." The teacher was aghast and promptly changed the subject to geography. Later that day she went to Billy's house and rang the bell. Billy's father answered the door. The teacher explained what his son had said and asked if there might be some logical explanation. Billy's father said, "I'm actually an attorney. But how can I explain a thing like that to a seven-year-old?"

“Certainly,” replies the doctor. “Where do you think lawyers come from?”

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 full tilt. No matter how fast he runs, the rats keep up, squealing hideously, now not just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to the water's edge a trail of rats twelve city blocks long is behind him.

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, "I was wondering if you have a bronze lawyer."

A newly established lawyer, wanting to impress the first client coming into his office, picked up the phone and said, "I'm sorry, but I have a tremendous case load and won't be able to look into this for at least a month." He then hung up, turned to the young man in his office and asked, "What can I do for you, sir?" "Nothing," replied the young man. "I'm just here to hook up your phone."
