A guy comes into the small shop in a vacation town. He tells the clerk
that he arrived back at his cabin and discovered that there are rats in the
cabin. So the clerk sells him a brass rat, and tells him that he is to
throw it into the middle of the lake.
Well, the guy does that, and lo and behold! Thousands and thousands
and thousands of rats come streaming out of the cabins, including his
own, and jump into the lake and drown!
So back he goes to the shop. "I'm glad it worked for you," the clerk
says. "So, can I sell you another brass rat?"
"No," says the guy. "Actually, I was wondering if you have any brass

A defending attorney was cross examining a coroner. The 
attorney asked, "Before you signed the death certificate had 
you taken the man's pulse?"
"No," the coroner replied.
The attorney then asked, "Did you listen for a heart beat?"
The coroner said, "No."
"Did you check for breathing?", asked the attorney.
Again the coroner replied, "No."
The attorney asked, "So when you signed the death certificate 
you had not taken any steps to make sure the man was dead, 
had you?"
The coroner, now tired of the brow beating said, "Well, let 
me put it this way. The man's brain was sitting in a jar on 
my desk, but for all I know he could be out there practicing 
law somewhere."

NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent to Mars.
Only one could go, and that person couldn't return to Earth. 
The first applicant, an engineer, was asked how much he wanted to be
paid for going.
"One million dollars," he answered, "because I want to donate it to 
The next applicant, a doctor, was asked the same question. He asked
for two million dollars.
"I want to give a million to my family," he explained, "and leave the
other million for the advancement of medical research." 
The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how much money he wanted, he 
whispered in the interviewer's ear, "Three million dollars."
"Why so much more than the others?" the interviewer asked. 
The lawyer replied, "If you give me $3 million, I'll give you $1 million, 
I'll keep $1 million, and we'll send the engineer."

Most people think heaven is above us and hell beneath. Actually they're
side by side and separated by a huge wooden fence.
One day, things in Hell got a bit out of hand. The devil and the damned
threw a party. The drinks flowed and the rock music raged. Before you
knew it, someone yelled "fireball fight" and the flames were soaring.
Unfortunately, one unlucky toss landed atop the dividing fence, burning it
down. God, quite upset, immediately called the Devil and demanded he build
the fence back up.
The Devil was nonplussed. "Relax" he said. "We have all the old time
union leaders down here, not to mention some government contractors. We'll
take care of it. And they did. However, when they rebuilt the dividing
fence, the demon contractors built it three feet into heaven's territory --
basically stealing three feet of heaven.
Once again, God was upset. "Devil" he raged "you tear down that fence and
rebuild it on the correct dividing line, or else!!"
The Devil, more curious then concerned, responded "Or else what?"
"Or else" explained the Lord, "I'll sue you for every cent in hell!!!!"
The devil paused for only a bit, and smiled. "Oh yeah" he asked "and where
would YOU find a lawyer.....

Billy, Bobby and Joe had a spree in the fruit orchard. They tore
all the fruit from the trees, gorged themselves, then threw fruit
and generally vandalized the place. When the farmer caught them,
he called the sheriff and had them taken into custody. When the
boys appeared before the judge after spending a night in jail, he
asked them if they had learned their lesson. The first boy
replied, "Yes, sir. All that fruit made me sick. My dad's a
doctor, and he told me never to do that again!" The second boy
was from a military family, "My dad told me that if I ever get in
trouble with the law again, I can kiss West Point goodbye!" The
third boy told the judge, "You bet I won't do it. My dad's a
lawyer, and I'm gonna sue that farmer for damages to my pants
that got tore jumping his fence!"
New jokes will be introduced periodically to The Lawyer's Joke Corner.
