At a convention of biological scientists one researcher remarks to another, "Did you know that in our lab we have switched from mice to lawyers for our experiments?" 
"Really?" the other replied, "Why did you switch?" 
"Well, for four reasons. First we found that lawyers are far more plentiful, second, the lab assistants don't get so attached to them, third there are some things even a rat won't do, and fourth sometimes it very hard to extrapolate our test results to human beings."

Bob says: "Because the advice he gave us is 100% accurate, and totally useless".

A truck driver would amuse himself by running over lawyers he would see walking down the side of the road. Every time he would see a lawyer walking along the road, he would swerve to hit him, and there would be a loud "THUMP" and then he would swerve back onto the road. 
One day, as the truck driver was driving along he saw a priest hitchhiking. He thought he would do a good turn and pulled the truck over. 
He asked the priest, "Where are you going, Father?" 
"I'm going to the church 5 miles down the road," replied the priest. 
"No problem, Father! I'll give you a lift. Climb in the truck." 
The happy priest climbed into the passenger seat and the truck driver continued down the road. 
Suddenly the truck driver saw a lawyer walking down the road and instinctively he swerved to hit him. But then he remembered there was a priest in the truck with him, so at the last minute he swerved back away, narrowly missing the lawyer. However even though he was certain he missed the lawyer, he still heard a loud "THUMP". Not understanding where the noise came from he glanced in his mirrors and when he didn't see anything, he turned to the priest and said, "I'm sorry Father. I almost hit that lawyer." 
"That's okay", replied the priest. "I got him with the door!"

A housewife, an accountant and a lawyer were asked "How much is 2+2?" 
The housewife replies: "Four!".

A judge in a small city was hearing a drunk-driving case and the defendant, who had both a record and a reputation for driving under the influence, demanded a jury trial. It was nearly 4:30 p.m. and getting a jury would take time, so the judge called a recess and went out in the hall looking to impanel anyone available for jury duty. He found a dozen lawyers in the main lobby and told them that they were a jury.
The lawyers thought this would be a novel experience and so followed the judge back to the courtroom.
The trial was over in about 10 minutes and it was very clear that the defendant was guilty. The jury went into the jury-room, the judge started getting ready to go home, and everyone waited. After nearly three hours, the judge was totally out of patience and sent the bailiff into the jury-room to see what was holding up the verdict. 
When the bailiff returned, the judge said, "Well have they got a verdict yet?" 
The bailiff shook his head and said, "Verdict? Hell, they're still doing nominating speeches for the foreman's position!"
