Court snorters....

Carol sent me these amusing attorney/witness interactions.  As Kate pointed out, one would initially think that the stupid things would be said by the witnesses. But as we see here, that is not necessarily the case.

ATTORNEY:      Are you sexually active?

WITNESS:        No, I just lie there.

ATTORNEY:        What is your date of birth?

WITNESS:         July 18th.

ATTORNEY:       What year?

WITNESS:         Every year.

ATTORNEY:        How old is your son, the one living with you?

WITNESS:          Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.

ATTORNEY:        How long has he lived with you?

WITNESS:          Forty-five years.

ATTORNEY:       This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?

WITNESS:         Yes.

ATTORNEY:       And in what ways does it affect your memory?

WITNESS:        I forget..

ATTORNEY:      You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

ATTORNEY:      Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?

WITNESS:        Did you actually pass the bar exam?

ATTORNEY:      The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?

WITNESS:        He's 20, much like your IQ.

ATTORNEY:      Were you present when your picture was taken?

WITNESS:        Are  you shitting me?

ATTORNEY:      So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?

WITNESS:        Yes.

ATTORNEY:      And what were you doing at that time?

WITNESS:        Getting laid.

ATTORNEY:      She had three children, right?

WITNESS:        Yes.

ATTORNEY:      How many were boys?

WITNESS:        None.

ATTORNEY:      Were there any girls?

WITNESS:        Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?


ATTORNEY:      How was your first marriage terminated?

WITNESS:         By death.

ATTORNEY:      And by whose death was it terminated?

WITNESS:        Take a  guess.

ATTORNEY:      Can you describe the individual?

WITNESS:        He was about medium height and had a beard.

ATTORNEY:      Was this a male or a female?

WITNESS:        Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.

ATTORNEY:      Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?

WITNESS:        No, this is how I dress when I go to work.

ATTORNEY:      Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?

WITNESS:        All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.

ATTORNEY:      ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?

WITNESS:       Oral.

ATTORNEY:     Do you recall the time that you examined the body?

WITNESS:       The autopsy started around 8:30 PM .

ATTORNEY:     And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?

WITNESS:       If not, he was by the time I finished.

And last:

ATTORNEY:     Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?

WITNESS:       No.

ATTORNEY:     Did you check for blood pressure?

WITNESS:       No.

ATTORNEY:     Did you check for breathing?

WITNESS:       No.

ATTORNEY:     So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?

WITNESS:       No.

ATTORNEY:     How can you be so sure, Doctor?

WITNESS:       Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.

ATTORNEY:     I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?

WITNESS:       Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

The Ronald Reagan International Trade Center

Where I perform on the weekends when in DC.  Like the late Ronald Reagan himself, it is an impressive conservative edifice: large, sturdy, beloved by the dimwitted, and as dumb as a pile of bricks, which it is.

"Occifer, that tree jumped right out in front of me! "

I admire that they somehow missed the sign. Got the package Pop, thank you for everything.

Ok, this caption really made me laugh

From this page: http://projectophile.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/mid-century-modern-dream-homes-that-will-kill-your-children/

This quote made me shoot diet coke out of my nose. 


Red arrows show the direction of travel of children's bodies..."

Roger Ebert died

For a man who wrote about the ephemeral world of fakitude, he was decidedly profound.  This quote may be the deepest statement I have encountered. For someone I did not know, I loved this man: he was convincing in his perception of reality, he was noble in dealing with his demise. i should be so good of a person.

"Kindness' covers all of my political beliefs, no need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out."  --Roger Ebert

Mom? You know how you wanted me to grow up to be an Islamic terrorist?

Well, good news!

Even when my hair sucks it rules

Thank God for one good feature... Erica, I realize you have no idea what I'm talking about.

Also tried to send this picture

Andrew Campbell, entertaining human extraordinaire, revisits the Capitol Steps. His youth at 40+ makes me feel old. Andrew,  Elaina, Andrew's wife, Mark Eaton, me taking the pic. 

Also tried to send this pic of us at the park

Sec 205. Sold out opening day. Crowded but awesome.

Hmmm...tried to send this a couple of days ago...

Opening Day,  Nats Park. Me, Katie,  Carol. We won!
