GOTTA RUN . . . , PART III
Well, I need to Learn something legal from some lawyer who's being paid handsomely to teach other lawyers. So I can Earn my Continuing Legal Education credits, as required by NY's Bar. And why is this so? So I can continue to Earn for the firm for which I'm employed, the astronomically high legal fees it charges its clients!
And the best part: Today's legal education topic is . . . Legal Ethics!
I don't even have a joke. Therefore, I'm opening the comments floor to everyone, to fill us in with your best Lawyer Joke. Your own joke. A tired, old classic you heard from a drunken sot at a bar with the scent of whiskey and cigarettes infusing the finely-tailored threads of his expensive suit. From a friend who forked over thousands of bucks to the counselor that "helped" him get a divorce.
It's your choice. And, I lied. I do have a joke. Here, to start things off, is a lawyer joke:
A man is standing in line for the ATM, when the fellow behind him starts rubbing his back & shoulders in a very deep, intense manner! Although it actually feels pretty good, the first gentleman is nonetheless shocked, so he turns around and snaps.
"What the hell? Why are you rubbing my back???"
To which the second man replies, "Well, I'm a massage therapist, so I'm just demonstrating my skills."
"Yeah, and I'm a lawyer," the first man shoots back, "but you don't see me screwing the guy in front of me."
Hahahaha. Get it? He was a lawyer, so he meant that . . . oh, never mind. Let fly with your own. The winner (chosen by a panel of Me, a Millionaire partner at a famous NYC firm, and Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito) earns 2 CLE credits in Ethics.
Catch you all later.
