My husband brought this home photocopied so I have no idea if it's true or not...It's meant just for a laugh:

Lawyers should never ask a 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 reponded,"why, yes, I do know you Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a great disppointment 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 2-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 3 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."

It's so depressing around here at times-just thought I'd get a chuckle from you all-no posts needed or wanted...Have a great day!!
