Lawyer!

Day 1,823, 18:17 Published in Canada Canada by Adrastos Amon

An old man was critically ill. Feeling that death was near, he
called his lawyer. "I want to become a lawyer. How much is
it or the express degree you told me about?"

"It's $50,000," the lawyer said. "But why? You'll be dead soon,
why do you want to become a lawyer?"

"That's my business! Get me the course!"

Four days later, the old man got his law degree. His lawyer
was at his bedside, making sure his bill would be paid.

Suddenly the old man was racked with fits of coughing and
it was clear that this would be the end. Still curious, the
lawyer leaned over and said, "please, before it's too late,
tell me why you wanted to to get a law degree so badly before
you died?"

In a faint whisper, as he breathed his last, the old man said,
"One less lawyer . . ."

Groan ...

A very wealthy man, old and terminally ill, calls to his home his three closest advisors: his doctor, his priest, and his lawyer.

"Everyone tells me," he says, "'you can't take it with you.' But who knows? Suppose they're mistaken. I'd like to have something with me, just in case."

So I am giving each of you an envelope containing five hundred thousand dollar bills and I want each of you to make sure the envelopes go with me, into my coffin, at my funeral so that if it turns out that it's useful, I'll have something." They each agree to carry out his wish.

Sure enough, after just a few weeks, the old man passes away. At his funeral, each of the three advisors is seen slipping something into the coffin. After the burial, as the three are walking away together, the doctor turns to the other two and says, "Friends, I have a confession to make."

"As you know, at the hospital we are desperate because of the cutbacks in funding. Our CAT SCAN machine broke down and we haven't be able to get a new one. So, I took $100,000 of our friend's money towards a new CAT SCAN and put the rest in the coffin as he asked."

At this the priest says, "I, too have a confession to make. As you know, our church is simply overwhelmed by the problem of the homeless. The needs keep increasing and we have nowhere to turn. So I took $250,000 from the envelope for our homeless fund and put the rest in the coffin as out friend requested."

Fixing the other two in his gaze, the lawyer says, "I am astonished and deeply disappointed that you would treat so casually our solemn undertaking to our friend. I want you to know that I placed in his coffin my personal check for the full five hundred thousand dollars."
