WFFOT: Third Anniversary Edition

(forwarded from Brenda)

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren’t
prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first
witness, a grand motherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and
asked, “Mrs. Jones, do you know me?”

She responded, “Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since
you were a young boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me.
You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about
them behind their backs. You think you’re 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, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t
build a normal relationship 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. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.”

The defense attorney almost died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet
voice, said, “If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send
you to the electric chair.”

  2. Uhh…a rating system?
    Say it ain’t so.

    • it’s a sarcasm thing. Hope no one takes it seriously.

      • Oh, okay then.
        But a sarc tag might be beneficial, otherwise, posters might see it, that have seen it before, and bail.
        Also, is it possible to turn off the WP preview thingie? It’s always an annoyance, but even more so today. It just blinks, and won’t stay open long enough for me to click on the ‘turn off’ button at the bottom of the black field.
