Lawyer Joke # 3,479,153 (c) February 22, 2014

In a recent trend, lawyers are replacing rats as laboratory research animals.

There are 3 main reasons:

1. They are plentiful.

2.  Lab assistants don’t get attached to them.

3.  There are some things that rats just won’t do.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Nancy!.. 😆

nrhatch - February 22, 2014

My bad. :mrgreen:

I bet the rats are happy.

nrhatch - February 22, 2014

They’re sitting on the sidelines, nibbling and noshing at the All You Can Eat Cheese Board, with smiles of satisfaction tickling their whiskers as lawyers (intent on the rat race) chase the almighty $ round and round the Merry-Go-Round.

Ha! Worked for lawyers for many years. They are SO mistreated by all our jokes, but I think they laugh, also. I’m sure you know, Nancy. Blessings to you…

nrhatch - February 22, 2014

Thanks, Carol Ann. Most of the attorneys I practiced with over the years would have found this joke amusing . . . but not all.

Some members of the rat race would benefit from an overhaul of their funny bone chakra. Life need not be serious all the time.

Have a wonder-filled day!

6. Grannymar - February 22, 2014

So right. ‘Life need not be serious all the time’. In these troubled days need every chance to lift our spirits!

nrhatch - February 22, 2014

At last . . . a real USE for all those lawyers. 😀

Hope your day’s been full of silly giggles!

8. Val Boyko - February 23, 2014

Naughty and funny! Wonder what happened to the rats. They’re probably practicing law….

nrhatch - February 23, 2014

OMG! You made me laugh out loud, Val. You rock!

9. diannegray - February 23, 2014

LOL! Too good 😀

nrhatch - February 23, 2014

Glad you enjoyed . . . it gave me a good giggle.

I’ve heard that lawyers are expected to be “zealous” advocates of their clients’ cases. I’d prefer someone who is competent, regardless of his or her zealotry.
Who’d want a lawyer who is zealously incompetent?
You’d have the three stooges: The law firm of Shep(was that his name?), Larry and Curly?
Then there was that other law firm of Groucho, Chico and Harpo?
Take your pick!

nrhatch - February 24, 2014

How about the firm of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe? :mrgreen:

Johnny Carson, Groucho Marx, and Daffy Duck used this name to poke fun at the perceived propensity of some lawyers and accountants to take advantage of their clients.

11. jannatwrites - February 24, 2014

Haha… good one, Nancy!

nrhatch - February 24, 2014

Here’s to finding laughter in life. 😀

12. Three Well Beings - February 24, 2014

I don’t like lawyer jokes…unless an attorney delivers them! LOL! When you want to make fun of your own profession, I am more than happy to laugh along with you. 🙂

nrhatch - February 24, 2014

I’ve also done Engineering jokes . . . because I come from a family overflowing with Engineers. 😀

I remember the Movie and TV Series “The Paper Chase” about the Harvard Law School; focused on a class taught by Professor Kingsfield, portrayed by John Houseman.

“You come in here with minds full of mush! When you leave–the mush- -will be–So-lid-i-fied!”

nrhatch - March 3, 2014

I don’t remember that line, but I do recall the movie. John Houseman was fantastic as Kingsfield.

William D'Andrea - March 4, 2014

That second sentence was not in the original Movie or TV Show. It was intended as a joke, composed by me, the natural comedian.

nrhatch - March 4, 2014

Got it! See . . . I paid you a compliment by thinking it might have been in the original script.

Of course, if it had been in the script and I didn’t remember it, not so much. 😉

14. William D'Andrea - March 6, 2014

Thank you for your positive review on my piece of fan fiction.

nrhatch - March 6, 2014

De nada.
