Joke of the day for October 28
The following questions from attorneys were taken from official court records.
Was that the same nose you broke as a child?
Now, doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, in most cases he just passes quietly away and doesn’t know anything about it until the next morning?
Q: What happened then?
A. He said, “I have to kill you because you can identify me.”
Q. Did he kill you?
Was it you or your brother that was killed in the war?
The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
Were you alone or by yourself?
Do you have any children or anything of that kind?
Q. I show you exhibit 2 and ask you if you recognize that picture.
A. That’s me.
Q. Were you present when that picture was taken?
Were you present in court this morning when you were sworn in?
Q. Now, Mrs. Johnson, how was your first marriage terminated?
A. By death.
Q. And by whose death was it terminated?
Q. Do you know how far along in your pregnancy you are now?
A. I’ll be three months on October 16.
Q. Apparently, then, the date of conception was July 16.
Q.: What were you doing at that time?
So you were gone until you returned?
Q. She had three children, right?
Q. How many were boys?
Q. Were there girls?
You don’t know what it was, and you didn’t know what it looked like, but can you describe it?
Q. You say that the stairs went down to the basement?
Q. And these stairs, did they go up also?
Q. Have you lived in this town all your life?
A. Not yet.
An attorney, realizing he was on the verge of unleashing a stupid question, interrupted himself and said, “Your Honor, I’d like to strike the next question.”
