Two small boys, not yet old enough to be in school, were overheard
talking at the zoo one day.
"My name is Billy. What's yours?" asked the first boy.
"Tommy," replied the second.
"My Daddy's an accountant. What does your Daddy do for a living?" asked
Tommy replied, "My Daddy's a lawyer."
"Honest?" asked Billy.
"No, just the regular kind," replied Tommy.

ATTORNEYS CASTS THEIR SERVICES UPON THE WATERS
MIAMI, FL (DPI) -- With the burning of the cruise ship Ecstasy, personal
injury lawyers turned out in herds on the docks waiting for the ship to
be to towed back to port. The more enterprising ones created a new
version of ambulance chasing by hiring anything with a motor that
floated to go out to the damaged vessel and get first dibs on the
soon-to-be-litigating passengers. Many of them taped their business
cards to rocks and hurled them onto the deck of the ship, while others
used Nerf footballs offering to represent those hurt by falling rocks.
The school of shysters circled the ship and prompted one passenger to
say, "It was kind of neat to watch them. Just like dolphins. But I
hear they're related to the shark family."

its financial problems through litigation. This is the kind of thing
that happens when the percentage of lawyers in a state exceeds a

to get you into Heaven." The Lawyer said, "Wait Wait! There's more!
Three years ago I also gave a homeless person a quarter." Saint Peter
nodded to Gabriel, who after a moment nodded back, affirming this, too,
had been verified.
Saint Peter then whispered to Gabriel, "Well, what do you suggest we do
with this fellow?"
Gabriel gave the Lawyer a sidelong glance, then said to Saint Peter,
"Let's give him back his 50 cents and tell him to go to Hell."
