A lawyer joke...

A friend sent me this joke the other day and I thought I'd heard just about all of the lawyer jokes there are out there, but it's one I hadn't heard before, thanks to a South Carolina injury lawyer out there, here goes:

A lawyer died and arrived at the pearly gates. To his dismay, there were thousands of people ahead of him in line to see St. Peter. But, to his surprise, St. Peter left his desk at the gate and came down the long line to where the lawyer was standing. St. Peter greeted him warmly. Then St. Peter and one of his assistants took the lawyer by the hands and guided him up to the front of the line into a comfortable chair by his desk.

The lawyer said, "I don't mind all this attention, but what makes me so special?"

St. Peter replied, "Well, I've added up all the hours for which you billed your clients, and by my calculation you must be about 193 years old!"

Ba-da---dum! ;-)

But seriously, I may be the only person I know who likes his attorney. She is one no-nonsense broad. Delivers the bullet; won't let me ask all sorts of nonsensical questions while she's on the clock; makes I have everything I need, but doesn't pad her hours (even bills me in increments). All in all, worth her weight in gold.

Some of my best friends are lawyers but thankfully they have a great sense of humor.
