Engineering In Hell
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 awhile, 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 gotten 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?"
Farmer Joe and his Mule
Farmer Joe decided his injuries from his recent accident were serious
enough to take the trucking company responsible for the accident to
court. In court, the trucking company's fancy lawyer was questioning
"Didn't you say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?"
"Well, I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the--"
"I didn't ask for any details," the lawyer interrupted. "Just answer
the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, that you
"Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and was driving down the road--"
"Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the
accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was
just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my
client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the
question." By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe's
answer and told the lawyer so.
"Well," said the farmer, "as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my
favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway
when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my
truck right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was
thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn't want to move.
However, I could hear ol' Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was
in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident a
Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and
groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her he took out his
gun and shot her between the eyes. Then the Patrolman came across the
road with his gun in his hand and looked at me. He said, "Your mule was
in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?"

Oh, Those Darn Lawyers
Two lawyers, Jon and Amanpreet, head out for their usual 9 holes of
golf. Jon offers Amanpreet a $50 bet. Amanpreet agrees and they're off.
They shoot a great game. After the 8th hole, Amanpreet is ahead by one
stroke, but cuts his ball into the rough on the 9th.
"Help me find my ball. Look over there," he says to Jon. After a few
minutes, neither has any luck. Since a lost ball carries a four point
penalty, Amanpreet secretly pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it
to the ground. "I've found my ball!" he announces.
"After all of the years we've been partners and playing together," Jon says, "you'd cheat me out of a lousy 50 bucks?"
"What do you mean, cheat? I found my ball sitting right there!"
"And you're a liar, too!" Jon says. "I'll have you know I've been STANDING on your ball for the last five minutes!"
A lawyer died and arrived at the pearly gates. To his dismay, there
were thousands of people ahead of him in line to see St. Peter. To his
surprise, St. Peter left his desk at the gate and came down the long
line to where the laywer was, and greeted him warmly.
Then St. Peter and one of his assistants took the lawyer by the hands
and guided him up to the front of the line, and into a comfortable
chair by his desk.
The lawyer said, "I don't mind all this attention, but what makes me so special?"
St. Peter replied, "Well, I've added up all the hours for which you
billed your clients, and by my calculation you must be about 193 years

Ten Husbands, Still a Virgin
A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands. On
their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle, I'm
still a virgin."
"What?" said the puzzled groom. "How can that be if you've been married ten times?"
"Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be.
Husband #2 was in software services; he was never really sure how it
was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to
Husband #3 was from field services; he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.
Husband #4 was in telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver.
Husband #5 was an engineer; he understood the basic process but wanted
three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art
Husband #6 was from finance and administration; he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.
Husband #7 was in marketing; although he had a nice product, he was never sure how to position it.
Husband #8 was a psychologist; all he ever did was talk about it.
Husband #9 was a gynecologist; all he did was look at it.
Husband #10 was a stamp collector; all he ever did was... God! I miss him! But now that I've married you, I'm really excited!"
"Good," said the new husband, "but, why?"
"You're a lawyer. This time I know I'm gonna get screwed!"
The Brass Rat
A man walked into a curio store and was shopping around. After awhile, he chose a brass rat and brought it up to the counter.
"That will be $10 for the brass rat and $1,000 for the story behind it," said the proprietor.
"Thanks, but I'll just pay the $10 and pass on the story." He purchased
the brass rat and left the store. As he was walking down the street, he
started noticing all sorts of rats following him. The further he
walked, the more rats followed. He walked down to the wharf and still
more rats came out and followed him. So, he decided to walk out into
the water, all the rats drowned. He returned to the store shortly.
"Ah-ha!" said the proprietor. "You've come back for the story, right?"
"Nope," said the man. "You have any brass lawyers?"
The Clever Lawyer
A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense:
"My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few
trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you
can punish the whole individual for an offense committed by his limb."
"Well put," the judge replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the
defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not,
as he chooses."
The defendant smiled. And, with his lawyer's assistance, he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench and walked out.
The First Profession
A doctor, an engineer, a rabbi and a lawyer were debating who was the world's first professional.
The doctor said, "It must have been a doctor. Who else could have
helped with the world's first surgery of taking a rib from Adam to
create Eve, the first woman?"
"No," said the rabbi. "It must have been a rabbi, since the Lord needed
someone to help preach his message to Adam and the world."
"Wait," said the engineer, "The world was created in six days from
nothing. Do you know what a master engineering feat that must have been
to create the whole world into an orgnanized, civilized place from
"Yes, but who created the chaos?" asked the lawyer...
The Heart Of The Matter
A man who was having heart trouble went to the doctor to see what his
options were. Naturally, the doctor recommended a heart transplant. The
man reluctantly agreed, and asked if there were any hearts immediately
available, considering that money was no object.
"I do have three hearts," said the doctor. "The first is from an
18-year old kid, non-smoker, athletic, swimmer, with a great diet. He
hit his head on the swimming pool and died. It's $100,000. The second
is from a marathon runner, 25 years old, great condition, very strong.
He got hit by a bus. It's $150,000. The third is from a heavy drinker,
cigar smoker, steak lover. It's $500,000."
"Hey, why is that heart so expensive? He lived a terrible life!"
"Yes, but it's from a laywer. It's never been used."
The Hit and Run Case
A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his
office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck
passed too close and completely tore the door off of the driver's side.
The counselor immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 911, and
within minutes a policeman pulled up.
Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer
started screaming hysterically. His Lexus, which he had just picked up
the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same,
no matter what the body shop did to it.
When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief.
"I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said. "You are
so focused on your possessions that you don't notice anything else."
"How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, "Don't you know that your left arm is missing from the
elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you."
"Ahhh!" screamed the lawyer. "Where's my Rolex!"
The Lawyer and The Dead Man
A dying man gathered his best friends - a lawyer, doctor and clergyman
- at his bedside and handed each of them an envelope containing $25,000
in cash. He made them each promise that after his death and during his
repose, they would place the three envelops in his coffin. He told them
that he wanted to have enough money to enjoy the next life.
A week later the man died. At the wake, the lawyer and doctor and
clergyman each concealed an envelope in the coffin and bid their old
client and friend farewell.
By chance, these three met several months later. Soon the clergyman,
feeling guilty, blurted out a confession saying that there was only
$10,000 in the envelope he placed in the coffin. He felt, rather than
waste all the money, he would send it to a mission in South America. He
asked for their forgiveness.
The doctor, moved by the gentle Clergyman's sincerity, confessed that
he too had kept some of the money for a worthy medical charity. The
envelope, he admitted, had only $8000 in it. He said he too could not
bring himself to waste the money so frivolously when it could be used
to benefit others.
By this time the Lawyer was seething with self-righteous outrage. He
expressed his deep disappointment in the felonious behavior of two of
his oldest and most trusted friends. "I am the only one who kept my
promise to our dying friend. I want you both to know that the envelope
I placed in the coffin contained the full amount.
The other men looked down in embarrassment and the lawyer continued,
"Indeed, only I honored the deathbed wishes of our great friend. My
envelope contained my personal check for the entire $25,000."
A lawyer, an engineer and a mathematician were called in for a test.
The engineer went in first and was asked, "What is 2 + 2?" The engineer thought awhile and finally answered, "4."
Then the mathemetician was called in and was asked the same question. With little thought he replied, "4.0"
Then the lawyer was called in, and was asked the same question. The
lawyer answered even quicker than the mathememitician, "What do you
want it to be?"
