THIS IS THE BEST
LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR, DECADE AND PROBABLY THE CENTURY
A Charlotte, North
Carolina (NC) lawyer purchased a box of very rare and
expensive cigars, then insured them against fire, among other things.
Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great
cigars and without yet having made even his first premium
payment on the policy, the lawyer filed claim against the
claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost in a series of
small fires. The insurance company refused to pay, citing the
obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in the
normal fashion.mmmThe lawyer sued... and WON! (Stay with me)
delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company
that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless,
that the lawyer "held a policy from the company in which it
had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also
guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining
what is considered to be unacceptable fire" and was obligated
to pay the claim.
than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company
accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his
loss of the rare cigars lost in the "fires".
THE BEST PART...
lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested
on 24 counts of ARSON!!! With his own insurance claim and
testimony from the previous case being used against him, the
lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured
property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000
I have some doubts about the veracity of this tale as it was sent to me
by a lawyer friend! - Ed

lawyers have been known to walk through that room. With that, the
courtroom erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

Two alligators who had recently graduated from Oxford University
returned to their home in Louisiana. They were relaxing on a mud flat
taking in some sun whiling away the day luxuriating in their summer
leisure. Small alligator, "We've been together all our lives. We grew
up together, attended the same schools, dated the same alligator girls,
played alligator football, we eat the same food drink the same drink,
we even eat at the same places. We're always together. My friend, I
can't understand why you're nearly three times my size." Large
alligator, "It must be your technique or your manner of dining. Tell
me" he said, "how do you dine?" Small alligator, "Just like you I crawl
up to the back of the Courthouse, sneak between the bushes and the
wall, peek out to make sure no one can see me and then I rush out to
hide under a BMW, Lexus, Rolls or Porsche. When a lawyer comes up to
his car I lunge at him bite him, kill him and shake the excrement out
of him. Large alligator, "Ah! I thought so. Your technique is
appalling! You should know when you shake the excrement out of a lawyer
all you have left is a mouth, an anal sphincter and a briefcase full of
paper." -- Bill-McCaslin"

Approaching him was an attorney in a custom painted candy apple red
Lexus with custom fitted seats made in Spain of well let Corinthian
leather with the license plate: I-SUE-U. Sadly they collided
and the entire side of the Lexus from the head light to the
tail light was ripped from the car.

from the bus exclaiming repeatedly his most profound
expletive, "Oh! My!" The attorney struggled to free himself from his
stricken automobile fighting with the seat and shoulder belts
and loudly cursing the air bag. He jumped out greatly shaken as the

out to find help, and came to a farmhouse. When they knocked at the
door, the farmer explained that he had only two beds, and one of the
three had to sleep in the barn with the animals.
quickly agreed. The Rabbi said he would sleep in the barn and let the
other two have the beds. Ten minutes after the Rabbi left, there was a
knock on the bedroom door. The Rabbi entered exclaiming "I can't sleep
in the barn; there is a pig in there. It's against my religion to sleep
in the same room with a pig!" The Hindu said HE would sleep in the
barn, as he had no religious problem with pigs. However, about five
minutes later, the Hindu burst through the bedroom door saying "There's
a COW in the barn! I can't sleep in the same room as a cow! It's
against my religion!"
lawyer, anxious to get to sleep, said he'd go to the barn, as he had no
problem sleeping with animals. In two minutes, the bedroom door burst
open and the pig and the cow entered...
An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St Peter checks his
dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer-you're in the wrong place."
So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty
soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell,
and starts designing and building improvements.
After a while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and
escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day, God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer,
"So, how's it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things
are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and
escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come
up with next." God replies, "What? You've got an engineer? That's a
mistake... he should never have got down there; send him up here."
Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm
keeping him." God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue." Satan
laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU
going to get a lawyer?

baby there. "But how will I let you know the baby is born?" He replied,
"Just send me a postcard and write "spaghetti" on the back. I'll take

with a brain tumor was surprised when her doctor called her. and told
her of a new, experimental brain transplant procedure. When she met
with her doctor, he told her that she would require the transplant of
one pound of brain. The doctor then asked. "What type of brain do you
type?" the woman asked. "That makes a difference?" "Yes." replied the
doctor. "There is a substantial difference In price. For example,
one-pound of brain from a surgeon costs £12.000. while you can get
one-pound of brain from a nuclear physicist for £15.000. and so on. You
will gain some of the qualities associated with the profession of the
brain donor, so your choice can make a big difference."

girl I've dreamed of being a trial attorney."
Let's see. That's £250.000." the doctor replied. "You're kidding me I

A Blonde and a Lawyer...
A lawyer boarded an airplane
in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde stewardess
to take care of them for him.
She took the box and promised
to put it in the crew's refrigerator. He advised her that he was
holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning
in a very condescending manner that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to
lecture her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.
Needless to say, she was
annoyed by his behavior.
Shortly before landing in New
York, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin "Would the
gentleman who gave me the crabs in New Orleans please raise your hand?"
Not one hand went up ... so
she took them home and ate them.
Two lessons here:
1. Lawyers aren't as smart as
they think they are ....
2. Blondes aren't always as
dumb as most folks think
to everyone who sent in a "funny"
