At the court of a small provincial town, a lawyer calls his first witness,
an old woman around 80 and he asks her with a professional style: “Do you know me, Mrs. Rowland?”
“Of course, I know you Mr. Smith! says the old woman.
I know you since you were little, and I have to confess that I am very disappointed in you.
You lie, you cheat on your wife repeatedly, you gossip about your clients.
Of course, I know you!” Speechless, by the unexpected answer, the lawyer points with his finger on the other side of the court room and says:
“Do you know the defense lawyer?” “Oh, yes! I know Mr. Soft as well.
I was holding him in my arms when he was a baby, and I can say that I am disappointed in him, too.
He’s a drunk and a gamester. He finds it hard to develop a normal relationship with anyone and he is one of the worst lawyers of our town!”
At that point, the Chairman interrupts the process and demands from the two lawyers to approach the bench.
When they do, he bends over and whispers to them: “If any of you j**rks, asks if she knows me, you’re scr**w*d!”
