    That’s what Adam & Eve heard.

    Like the 55MPH signs around Atlanta. Merely suggestions.

    Where have you been Linguist? We have had some dandy troll wars over at Doonesbury and here. Dr. Tucci and the old Sarge. Lots of fun. Welcome back.

    Careful, counselor, or your ears will get cleaned out by a thunderbolt.

    I think the witness has it!!

    At the start of an important trial, a small town attorney called his first witness to the stand. She seemed like a sweet, elderly woman. 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. You’ve become a huge disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a hot shot lawyer, 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 replied, “Why, of course I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. I used to baby-sit him for his parents. And he, also, is a real disappointment. He’s lazy, bigoted, never has a nice word to say about anybody, and he drinks like a fish. He’s been divorced five times, and everybody knows that his law practice is one of the shoddiest in the entire state. Yes, I know him.”

    The judge rapped his gavel, to quiet the tittering among the spectators in the courtroom.

    Once the room was silent, he called both attorneys to his bench. In a quiet, menacing voice, he warned, “If either of you asks her if she knows me, you’ll be jailed for contempt!”

    @John Pike

    Where have you been Linguist ?
    I am currently “out of town” on an assignment but will be returning later this week. Unfortunately, I while I have been monitoring the daily goings on, I have not had time to post many comments due to time and work constraints.
    I, usually, try not to respond to the trolls, since I feel that only encourages their rants by recognizing them and reacting to their inanities. I have been following the “dialogue”, however.
    Glad to see you are getting back to your old self. Take it slow and easy. Rome ( New York ) wasn’t built in a day, you know.

    Maybe the one about not killing should have had an exception for lawyers.

    “Children of Israel, I bring you fifteen…’ Crash! ‘Ten .. .ten commandments!’
    I always wondered what was on the tablet he dropped.

    I think it’s interesting that six of the ten (the majority) are about how to deal with your fellow man, not God.

    Lawyers are like WMDs. The other guy has his so you need yours. All is fine until someone uses theirs. Then everything gets F***ed up

    There is of course always a stickler to the rules in every crowd or profession.

    Consider the lawyer who got pulled over for ‘failure to stop… at the stop sign. The Lawyer tried to use the ’I slowed down and no one was coming… what’s the difference? Slowing down was good enough because there wasn’t any cars approaching the intersection.’ excuse.

    The officer explained it this way. Sir, here is the difference. If I were to pull you out of your vehicle and begin beating on you with my night stick and you told me to stop, then would my slowing down be good enough or would you want me to cease? Stop means stop not slow down.

    Take ten tablets and see me tomorrow. No, there is no option of a second opinion.

    Did anybody actually see what was written on the tablets or did he make it up as he went along?
