Tuesday Truthful Humor
Welcome to Tuesday’s Trench Humor where we like to pull the truth from something funny.
So there’s a trial going on in a small town and the prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand, a grandmotherly, elderly woman. His first question: "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"
She responded, "Why, yes, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy. And frankly, you've been a big 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 rising big shot 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. Williams, do you know the defense attorney?"
She again replied, "Why, yes I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. I used to baby-sit him for his parents. He’s been a real disappointment to me too. He's lazy, bigoted; he has a drinking problem. The man can't build a normal relationship with anyone. And his law practice is one of the shoddiest in the entire state."
At this point, the judge rapped the courtroom to silence and called both counsellors to the bench. In a very quiet voice, he said with menace, "If either of you asks her if she knows me, you'll be in jail for contempt within 5 minutes!"
Ahh, isn’t it so true that our reputations are either infected or respected by our actions!
