На днях читал анекдоты и шутки на английском посмеялся.
Решил вот запостить здесь некоторые из них, посвященные юристам:
Recently a teacher, a garbage collector, and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they would each have to answer one question.
St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, “What was the name of the ship that crashed into the iceberg? They just made a movie about it.”
The teacher answered quickly, “That would be the Titanic.” St. Peter let him through the gate.
St. Peter turned to the garbage man and, figuring Heaven didn’t really need all the odors that this guy would bring with him, decided to make the question a little harder: “How many people died on the ship?”
Fortunately for him, the trash man had just seen the movie. “1,228”, he answered.
That’s right! You may enter.”
St. Peter turned to the lawyer. “Name them.”
A guy walks into a post office one day to see a middle-aged, balding man standing at the counter methodically placing «-Love»- stamps on bright pink envelopes with hearts all over them. He then takes out a perfume bottle and starts spraying scent all over them. His curiosity getting the better of him, he goes up to the balding man and asks him what he is doing.
The man says «-I’m sending out 1,000 Valentine cards signed, ‘Guess who?’»-
«-But why?»- asks the man.
«-I’m a divorce lawyer.»-
Joe the lawyer died suddenly, at the age of 45. He got to the gates of Heaven, and the angel standing there said, «-We’-ve been waiting a long time for you.»-
«-What do you mean,»- he replied, «-I’-m only 45, in the prime of my life. Why did I have to die now?»-
«-45? You’-re not 45, you’-re 82,»- replied the angel.
«-Wait a minute. If you think I’-m 82 then you have the wrong guy. I’-m only 45. I can show you my birth certificate.»-
«-Hold on. Let me go check,»- said the angel and disappeared inside. After a few minutes the angel returned. «-Sorry, but by our records you are 82. I checked all the hours you have billed your clients, and you have to be 82…-»-
