Lawyer Jokes

So Im in class again and you know the routine.
 Lots of Jokes.  Are all of them funny? No.  Are some of them? Yeah.  Are all of them about lawyers? Yes.  Do you see the relevance here?
Memorize them folks…when you tell me a lawyer joke in the future it better be funny, unless I fail out of law school in which case even the word lawyer will probably make me break out in tears.
But seriously, we all know that there are really only three jokes about lawyers.  The rest are true stories.
Lots of jokes after the break.

A lawyer opened the door of his BMW, when suddenly a car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived at the scene, the lawyer was complaining bitterly about the damage to his precious BMW.
“Officer, look what they’ve done to my Beeeemer!!!”, he whined.
“You lawyers are so materialistic, you make me sick!!!” retorted the officer, “You’re so worried about your stupid BMW, that you didn’t even notice that your left arm was ripped off!!!”
“Oh my gaaad….”, replied the lawyer, finally noticing the bloody left shoulder where his arm once was, “Where’s my Rolex???!!!!!”

A lawyer, the Dalai Lama and the Pope are all at the Pearly Gates one day going through the check in process. St. Peter says to the Pope, “Your Holiness, your papers are all set, and your cabin awaits. Have a nice eternity”. St. Peter then turns to the Dalai Lama and says, “You’re all set too, enlighened one, Take a left at the first cloud and you’ll see your bungalow. Enjoy this incarnation” St. Peter then looks at the lawyer and says. “Counselor, here’s your key, and your chauffeur will drive you to your mansion. Have a great afterlife”
The lawyer is astonished and says, “The Pope has to walk to his tiny cabin, the Dalai Lama strolls down to a little bungalow and I get a chauffeur and a mansion! How come?” St Peter just smiles and says, “We get Popes and Dalai Lamas coming out of our ears up here. Your’e the first lawyer we’ve ever had.”

A father walks into a bookstore with his young son. The boy is holding a nickel. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face.
The father realizes the boy has swallowed the nickel and starts panicking, shouting for help.
A well dressed, attractive and serious looking woman, in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the book store.
Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants; takes hold of the boy’s testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the nickel, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy’s testicles, the woman hands the nickel to the father and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar without saying a word.
As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, ‘I’ve never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?’
‘No,’ the woman replied. ‘Divorce attorney.’

A man and his fiancee are killed in a car crash two days before they’re scheduled to be married. They end up together in front of St. Peter and say, “St. Peter, we were about to get married. Can we still get married in heaven?” St. Peter replies, “Hmm, good question, let me check,” and walks away. The couple figures he’ll be back shortly, but it’s been a half hour and he’s still not back. Six hours, still not back. The next day, still not back. A week later, still not back. Four months later, St. Peter finally comes back and says, “Yes, you can get married in heaven.” The couple is happy, but then they ask, “St. Peter, that’s great, but what if it doesn’t work out? Can we get divorced in heaven?” St. Peter just looks at them for a second and explodes. “GIVE ME A BREAK! It took me FOUR MONTHS to find a priest, and now you want me to find a LAWYER?”

Trial Lawyer is miserable. Can’t win a case, and now, he isnt’ even being retained. He’s alone in his den one night, when Beeazlebub makes an appearance. He guarantees Shyster he’ll win ever case, be awarded every judgment he seeks, and soon, head the biggest firm in NY, with his name on the door. “Just one thing,” says our horned devil. He points to the picture of Shyster’s wife and three lovely children. “Upon their death, the souls of your wife and children will be committed to me for all attorney.”

Every egg is smashed, except for one in each box. It’s a warm sunny day so the two remaining eggs hatch. After they hatch, the little duckling and little snake notice each other.
“What just happened?”, the snake asks the duck. “I’m not sure, but think we just hatched from our eggs”, the duck replies.
“Wow”, says the snake, “here we are, and we don’t even know what kind of animals we are”.
“Well”, says the duck, “we can try to guess”. “I’ll give it a shot”, responds the snake.”
