|There was a lawyer and he was just waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife was sitting by his side.|
His eyes fluttered open and he said, "You're beautiful!" and then he fell asleep again.
His wife had never heard him say that so she stayed by his side. A couple minutes later his eyes fluttered open and he said, "You're cute!"
Well, the wife was disappointed because instead of "beautiful" it was "cute."
She said, "What happened to 'beautiful'?"
His reply was, "The drugs are wearing off!"
|Two judges were each arrested on speeding charges. When they arrived in court on the appointed day, no one was there, so instead of wasting time waiting around they decided to try each other.|
One took the stand and the other said, "How do you plead?"
"That'll be fifty dollars and a warning from the court."

Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the question."
"Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to you.
|A minister and lawyer were chatting at a party.|
"What do you do if you make a mistake on a case?" the minister asked.
"Try to fix it if it's big; ignore it if it's insignificant," replied the lawyer. "What do you do?"
The minister replied, "Oh, more or less the same. Let me give you an example. The other day I meant to say 'the devil is the father of liars,' but instead I said 'the devil is the father of lawyers,' so I let it go."
