Laughter Remedies & Stress Relief - The Witness
WITNESS FOR THE ?
During a trial in a small town,
the prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand:
An Elderly Grandmother
He approached her and asked,
“Mrs. Jones, Do you know me?”
She responded, “Why yes I do. I’ve known you, Mr. Williams, since you were a young boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’rre a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you!”
The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, “Mrs. Jones, Do you know the defense attorney?”
She again replied, “Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, he has a drinking problem, he can’t build a normal relationships with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state, not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. Yes, I know him!”
The defense attorney looked in horror at the judge.
At this point, the judge brought the courtroom to silence, called both counselors to the bench, and in a very quiet voice said, “If either of you jackasses asks her if she knows me, you’ll be jailed for contempt.”
