Georgia Grandma Witness
Lawyers should never ask a Georgia grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.
In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?'
She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'
The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?'
She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'
The defense attorney nearly died.
The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, 'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.

Do You Serve Lawyers?

Do you serve lawyers here?".

I'll have a lawyer for my 'gator."
"You are a cheat!" shouted the attorney to his opponent.
"And you're a liar!" bellowed the opposition.
Banging his gavel loudly, the judge interjected,
"Now that both attorneys have been identified for the record,
let's get on with the case."

developed a penchant for anal sex, and she was not sure that it was such
a good idea.
The doctor asked, "Do you enjoy it?"
She said that she did.
He asked, "Does it hurt you?"
She said that it didn't.
The doctor then told her, "Well, then, there's no reason that you
shouldn't practice anal sex, if that's what you like, so long as you
take care not to get pregnant."
The woman was mystified. She asked "You can get pregnant from anal sex?"
The doctor replied, "Of course. Where do you think attorneys come from?"
A Doctor, A Priest, And A Lawyer
A doctor, a priest, and a lawyer are adrift on a raft in
the south Pacific. They're just about out of water, food,
and hope, when they spot a small island. Only problem is,
between the raft and the island is a large hungry school
of tiger sharks.
The doctor insists, "I'll swim for the island and
bring back coconuts and maybe even help. If the sharks
attack me, with my medical knowledge I'll be able to tend
to my wounds." The priest says, "No, no my son,
I shall swim for the island. I will pray as soon as I hit
the water and with my connections I'm sure to make it."
While the doctor and priest are arguing over who is to
go, the lawyer dives into the water and swims toward the
island. Miraculously, the sharks move away and clear a
path for the attorney. A little while later, the
barrister retruns to the raft with a lovely bunch of
coconuts. And again the sharks clear a path for him.
He finally gets to the raft and the bewildered doctor and
priest ask him what was the source of this miracle, and
he replied, "Professional courtesy, of course!"

Peter saw him and noticed that the fence was on their
side a little. Well he requested that the fence be moved
and when Satan said no, St. Peter gave him a week to move
the fence. A week went by and St. Peter again looked down
and saw that the fence had not been moved. So again he calls Satan:
ST. PETER: "Look Satan You'll have to move the fence over to your side !"
SATAN: "I built the fence to keep my people in, and
I ain't gonna move it one inch."
ST. PETER: "Then you leave me no choice, I'll have to sue you!"
SATAN: "Where do you think you'll get a lawyer?"
Johnny Cochran Goes Duck Hunting
Johnny Cochran was duck hunting in Montana recently, when he attempted to cross a fence into a field to retrieve a duck he had shot. A farmer suddenly pulled up in his pick-up truck, jumped out, and asked Mr. Cochran what he was doing on his property. "Retrieving this duck that I just shot", he replied.
"That duck is on my side of the fence, so now it's mine," replied the farmer.
Mr. Cochran asked the farmer if he recognized who he was talking to. "No", replied the farmer, "I don't know, and I don't care."
"I am Johnny Cochran, famous lawyer from Los Angeles", came the reply. "I am the lawyer that got O.J. Simpson off. I'm the reason he is a free man today. And if you don't let me get that duck, I can sue you for your farm, your truck, and everything else you own. I'll leave you penniless on the street."
"Well," said the farmer, "In Montana the only law we go by is the '3 kicks law'."
"Never heard of it", said Johnny.
The farmer said, "I get to kick you 3 times, and if you make it back to your feet and are able to kick me back 3 times, that duck is yours".
Cochran thought this over. He grew up in a tough neighborhood and figured he could take this old farmer. "Fair enough", he said.
So the farmer kicked Johnny violently in the groin. As he was doubling over, the farmer kicked him in the face, and when he hit the ground, he kicked him hard in the ribs. After several moments, Johnny slowly made it back to his feet "Alright, now it's my turn", said Johnny.
"Aw, forget it", said the farmer. "You can have the duck."
