The Materialistic Lawyer

A lawyer is sitting in his parked BMW when a tow truck crashes into the car. The crash takes car door clean off and the driver speeds away.


The lawyer immediately signals a cop and begins ranting about how much the damage to his car is going to cost.

The cop replies, “You lawyers are so materialistic. All you care about is money.”


The lawyer says, “How DARE you call me materialistic.”


The cop replies, “Well, you’ve been so concerned about your car that you didn’t notice that your arm is missing.”


The lawyer screams, “DAMMIT! My Rolex!”

a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?’ The American lawyer uses his
laptop and searches all references he could find on the Internet. He sends e-mails to
all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of searching he
finally gives up. He wakes up the Chinese and hands him $500. The Chinese
pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.
