A Lawyers Slant

7 posts in this topic

 

A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children,

needed to move because his rental agreement

was terminated by the owner who wanted to reoccupy the home.

 

But he was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house.

 

When he said, he had 12 children,

no one would rent a home to him because they

felt that the children would destroy the place.

 

He couldn't say he had no children,

because he couldn't lie

we all know lawyers cannot and do not lie.

 

So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids.

 

He took the remaining one with him to

see rental homes with the real estate agent.

 

He loved one of the homes and

the price was right -- the agent asked:

 

"How many children do you have?

 

He answered: "Twelve."

 

The agent asked, "Where are the others?"

 

The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look answered

“They're in the cemetery with their mother."

 

MORAL: It's not necessary to lie,

one only has to choose the right words…

and don't forget,

most politicians are former lawyers.

You wouldn't be referring to the sad individual who is "being treated worse than any politician in history", Ann? I'm sure the thousands of pollies of the past who have been ridiculed, imprisoned, tortured or even assassinated or executed would beg to differ on that whining, childish lament.

 

I know it's outside forum rules (but really this is too funny to be classified as "politics"), but this morning I had the best laugh for a long time when they reported that Putin had jokingly offered to give US/FBI investigators a recording of Trump's & Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergei Kislyak's meeting in the White House. It seems this has even found a genuine streak of humour in the otherwise sour Putin demeanour.

I have no problem with the joke, Rags. However, I have never been in a political discussion that ended well, so for me they are all a no-go area and definitely not a place I want to revisit any time soon. Too many friendships have been tarnished with petty political scraps, therefore politics has no place in FZ.
