On Trial

After a trial had been going on for three days, Finley, the man accused of committing the crimes, stood up and approached the judge’s bench. “Your Honor, I would like to change my plea from ‘innocent’ to ‘guilty’ of the charges.” The judge angrily banged his fist on the desk. “If you’re guilty, why didn’t you say so in the first place and save this court a lot of time and inconvenience?” he demanded. Finley looked up wide-eyed and stated, “Well, when the trial started I thought I was innocent, but that was before I heard all the evidence against me.”

Glasses for Work

I came home from work last night exhausted. I said to my wife, “I need my glasses checked. I’m so nearsighted I nearly worked myself to death.” Perplexed, the wife asked, “What’s being nearsighted got to do with working yourself to death?” “I couldn’t tell whether the boss was watching me or not, so I had to work the whole time!”

The Rescue

Morty and Saul, are out one afternoon on a lake when their boat starts sinking. Saul the banker says to Morty, “So listen, Morty, you know I don’t swim so well.” Morty remembered how to carry another swimmer from his lifeguard class when he was just a kid. So Morty is begins tugging Saul toward shore. After twenty minutes, he begins to tire. Finally about 50 feet from shore, Morty asks Saul, “So Saul, do you suppose you could float alone?” Saul replies, “Morty, this is a heck of a time to be asking for money!”

In Court

A prospective juror in a Dallas District Court was surprised by the definition of voluntary manslaughter given the panel: “An intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is under the immediate influence of sudden passion arising from an adequate cause, such as when a spouse’s mate is found in a ‘compromising position.'” “See, I have a problem with that passion business,” responded the jury candidate. “During my first marriage, I came in and found my husband in bed with my neighbor. All I did was divorce him. I had no idea that I could have shot him.” She wasn’t selected for the jury.
