Law and Humour

When I was a child, I had dreams about being a doctor. A Surgeon. Cutting people up and sewing them back again. I also thought that movie people were courageous. Imagine have a job where you get killed?! I started wondering about their "courage" when the dead-in-the-previous-movie people popped on the screen in other movies. it puzzled me and I decided that "no, they worked in this one then in that other one!" Then I grew up.

I decided I'd be a lawyer. Its still a profession am contemplating. But since I read what is
ci-dessous, am reconsidering.

autopsy on him!

began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?

ATTORNEY: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing
[Am nursing a very very bad ache here
but couldn't consider starting my week end
without giving you a post.

thought I'd share it.
So, this better make you smile!]
