I am suffering from a bit of brain fry right about now. Consequently I donâ€™t have anything very interesting or amusing to contribute. As luck would have it, I received, via e-mail, quite possibly my one-millionth lawyer joke. I figure that this makes one million and one, and it is amusing enough to share. With any luck you too will like it and let me off the hook for having nuttinâ€™ of my own tonight.
A truck driver was driving down the highway when he saw an elderly priest at the side of the road. He stopped to give him a ride. Further down the road the truck driver saw a lawyer along the side of the road and turned the truck on a direct course to hit him. Then he thought, “Wait, I have a priest in the truck, I can’t run down that lawyer.”
So at the last second the truck driver swerved to miss the lawyer. Although he thought he hadn’t hit the lawyer, the truck driver still heard a thump outside of the truck. He looked in his mirror and saw the lawyer lying unconscious on the side of the road. Ashamed for what he had done, the truck driver turned to the priest and said, “I’m so sorry Father, I really tried to miss that lawyer.”
The priest said, “Don’t worry son, I got him with my door.”
Thatâ€™s all, yâ€™all. Rim shot.
