Some people never learn, and not even after facing the law repeatedly, the man in the following joke could admit that he is the one responsible for his imprisonment, prompting him to come up with a hilarious response.
Most of us are terrified of even thinking about getting arrested and being put in front of a judge, but some people get so used to it that they start to lose any respect or common sense when facing the law.
This joke, especially brought to you from Stars At 60, goes about a repeated offender that was presented to the same judge for the fifth time in a month, prompting the judge to address the situation.
“Yes, your Honor! That’s exactly what I told the officer, but he insisted I come anyway!”
OFF THE BOOK
The previous joke demonstrates that sometimes the worst we can do to defend ourselves in court is talking, and that is why most people put their trust in a lawyer when they get in trouble with the law and have to go to court.
Law school provides lawyers with the best tools to be of service for their clients, but there are some moves that are off the books that can surely make a difference, and the young lawyer of this other joke used one of those.
The young lawyer was chosen to defend a wealthy businessman in a complicated lawsuit, but there was not much hope for the defendant according to the evidence, which forced the young lawyer to come up with an unorthodox solution.
Much less formal than his senior partners in the firm, the young lawyer suggested sending the judge a box of cigars to win his favor, something that horrified his older partner in the case.
“The judge is an honorable man. If you do that, I guarantee you will lose the case!” the senior partner warned his young colleague.
Weeks went by and, to everyone’s surprise, the judge ruled in favor of the young lawyer’s client. To celebrate the victory for the firm, the senior partner took his young colleague to lunch.
Remembering his warning to the young lawyer, the senior partner asked him, “aren’t you glad you didn’t send those cigars to the judge?”
“But I did send them. I just enclosed the plaintiff’s lawyer’s business card!” replied the resourceful young lawyer.
And in case you are in need of another laugh to brighten your day, here is another joke involving law enforcement for you to enjoy and to share with your friends.
