Dying Old Man Wants to Become a Lawyer Urgently

Lawyer jokes are always fun to tell, but they can't be much fun from a lawyer's perspective. They are regularly associated with sharks and even the lowlifes they presumably often try to help.

In the funny story below, the old man clearly had no love for the profession and wanted to stick it to them one last time before he died.

An old man was critically ill. Feeling that death was near, he called his lawyer.

"I want to become a lawyer. How much is it for the express degree you told me about?"

"It's $50,000," the lawyer said.

"But why on Earth do you want to become a lawyer? You'll be dead soon!"

"That's my business! Get me the course!" said the old man.

Four days later, the old man gets his law degree.

His lawyer was at his bedside, just making sure his bill would be paid upon the old man's death.

Suddenly, the old man was racked with fits of coughing and it was clear that this was the end.

Still curious, the lawyer leaned over and said, "Please, before it's too late, tell me why you wanted to get a law degree so badly before you died?"

In a faint whisper, as he breathed his last, the old man said,

"So there'll be one less lawyer after..."
