A tourist walks into a curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at the
exotica, he notices a very life-like, life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It has
no price tag, but is so striking he decides he must have it.
He took it to the owner: "How much for the bronze rat?" "Twelve dollars for the rat, one hundred dollars for the story," said the owner.
The tourist gave the man twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story." As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, he noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and began following him down the street. This was disconcerting, he began walking faster. But within a couple blocks, the herd of rats behind him had grown to thousands.
Concerned, even scared, he ran to the edge of the Bay, and threw the bronze rat as far out into the Bay as he could. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after it, and were all drowned.
The man walked back to the curio shop. "Ah ha," said the owner, "You have come back for the story?" "No," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Lawyer."

A New York Divorce Lawyer died and arrived at the pearly gates. Saint Peter asks him "What have you done to merit entrance into Heaven?" The Lawyer thought a moment, then said, "A week ago, I gave a quarter to a homeless person on the street." Saint Peter asked Gabriel to check this out in the record, and after a moment Gabriel affirmed that this was true.
Saint Peter said, "Well , that`s fine, but it`s not really quite enough to get you into Heaven." The Lawyer said, "Wait Wait! There`s more! Three years ago I also gave a homeless person a quarter." Saint Peter nodded to Gabriel, who after a moment nodded back, affirming this, too, had been verified.
Saint Peter then whispered to Gabriel, "Well, what do you suggest we do with this fellow?"
Gabriel gave the Lawyer a sidelong glance, then said to Saint Peter,
"Let`s give him back his 50 cents and tell him to go to Hell."

An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks his dossier
and says, "Ah, you`re in the wrong place."
So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a while, they`ve got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, "So, how`s it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things are going great. We`ve got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there`s no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."
God replies, "What??? You`ve got an engineer?
That`s a mistake -- he should never have gotten down there; send him up here."
Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I`m keeping him."
God says, "Send him back up here or I`ll sue."
Satan laughs uproariously "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"
A guy was stuck in a traffic jam that hadn`t moved for more than half an hour.
Looking out his car window he saw a kid on a skateboard weaving his way towards
him through the line of stranded vehicles.
"Hey son, what`s the hold up?" the guy asked.
"It`s some crazy lawyer," replied the kid, "He`s lying in the middle of the road
and he`s doused himself with petrol and is threatening to set fire to himself.
We`re taking up a collection for him. Would you like to donate mister?"
"How much have you got so far?" the guy inquired.
"Oh," said the kid, "about thirty boxes of matches and twenty-three lighters."

For three years, the young attorney had been taking his brief vacations at
country inn. The last time he`d finally managed an affair with the innkeeper`s daughter.
Looking forward to an exciting few days, he dragged his suitcase up the stairs of
the inn, then stopped short. There sat his lover with an infant on her lap!
"Helen, why didn`t you write when you learned you were pregnant?" he cried. "I would have rushed up here, we could have gotten married, and the baby would have my name!"
"Well," she said, "when my folks found out about my condition, we sat up all
night talkin` and talkin` and decided it would be better to have a bastard in the
family than a lawyer."

A doctor vacationing on the Riviera met an old lawyer friend and asked him
he was doing there.
The lawyer replied, "Remember that lousy real estate I bought? Well, it caught
fire, so here I am with the fire insurance proceeds. What are you doing here?"
The doctor replied, "Remember that lousy real estate I had in Mississippi? Well,
the river overflowed, and here I am with the flood insurance proceeds."
The lawyer looked puzzled. "Gee," he asked, "How do you start a flood?"
Recently a teacher, a garbage collector, and a lawyer wound up together at
Pearly Gates. St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they
would each have to answer one question.
St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, "What was the name of the ship that
crashed into the iceberg? They just made a movie about it." The teacher answered
quickly, "That would be the Titanic." St. Peter let him through the gate.
St. Peter turned to the garbage man and, figuring Heaven didn't REALLY need all
the odors that this guy would bring with him, decided to make the question a
little harder: "How many people died on the ship?" Fortunately for him, the trash
man had just seen the movie and answered, "about 1,500." "That's right! You may
St. Peter then turned to the lawyer. "Name them."
