Like we said above: people love lawyer jokes.
Maybe it's the little things, like bowties being an acceptable fashion within the industry or the fact that we are all ridiculously good looking, just like on TV, that fuels our own category of joke telling?
Whatever it is, no one can deny the abundance of jokes out there about lawyers.
Here are few examples:
Q. Why won't sharks attack lawyers?
A. Professional courtesy.
Q. What do honest lawyers and UFOs have in common?
A. You always hear about them, but you never see them.
One day, there was this lawyer who had just bought a new car, and he was eager to show it off to his colleagues, when all of a sudden an eighteen wheeler came out of nowhere and took of the driver's side door with him standing right there. "NOOO!" he screamed, because he knew that no matter how good a mechanic tried to fix it, it never would be the same. Finally, a cop came by, and the lawyer ran up to him yelling. "MY JAGUAR DOOR WAS JUST RUINED BY SOME FOOLISH DRIVER!!!" he exclaimed. "You're a lawyer aren't you?" asked the policeman. "Yes, I am, but what does this have to do with my car?!?!" the lawyer asked. "HA! Your lawyers are always so materialistic. All you care about is your possessions. I bet you didn't even notice that your left arm is missing did you?" the cop said. The lawyer looked down at his side and exclaimed "MY ROLEX!"
Add your joke to the Lawyer Joke thread going on in The Water Cooler group.
It's a place where you can kick back, grab a cold one, and talk about other people at the office in the middle of the workday. No, it's not the pool, although we're sure some top firms may have one in the office, we're talking about that tried and tested hangout of most offices: the water cooler.
For the LawFAILS lawyer humor event, we've set up a virtual water cooler for you in the Water Cooler group.
