Today’s Joke: Mar. 15

I just came off of jury duty. None of us was thrilled to spend hours and hours waiting around in a boring waiting room to see if we’d get selected. There was a rather smug college professor who REALLY didn’t want to be there. When the judge was asking questions of the prospective jurors, concerning our abilities to judge fairly among the witnesses on both sides, the college professor said, “I don’t believe in the justice system of this state, and I should be relieved.”
I guess he thought he’d be sent home.
The judge was not impressed, to say the least, and said, “I find you in contempt of this court. I sentence you to spend one week in this courtroom. You will serve your sentence between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:30 pm and may go to have your lunch as the court stipulates from day to day. I think your opinion of our justice system will change. If you fail to carry out your sentence, you will spend one week in jail. You may now sit down, professor.”
