This is a little long..I can't understand some people.

Excerpts from Court Reporters

What a nice way to provide not only humor, but a look into our chaotic court system as well.

I get that in an email every now and then. Still funny every time I read it. I think some of the questions are funny because you can tell that they are rehearsed; I'll ask question 2 after question 1 (regardless of the answer). Funny stuff.

Although it is missing this one...

Q: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for blood pressure?
A: No.
Q: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
A: No.
Q: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
A: The person's brain was in a jar on my desk.
Q: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
A: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere.

Those are really funny!!!

I have a friend with boy/girl twins and she often gets asked if they are identical. She will say, "no, one is a boy and the other a girl". And they say, "I know, but are they identical twins?" Uh, no!
