Once again it's Friday Smile day over at Annie's A Stitch In Time and though I was unable to participate last week - due to circumstances out of my control - I can join in today :)
In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand.
The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs Jones, do you know the defence 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 three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes I know him.'
The defence attorney nearly died.
The judge asked both counsellors to approach the bench and in a lowered voice said, 'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.'
