    Friday Yuk


    by desmodeus ·

    My turn to start a Friday Yuk (given that I participate in about 3 or 4 discussions a year).
    Many of you have probably seen these before but they crack me up somthing shocking.

    These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters who had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

    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: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?

    WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.


    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: 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: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?

    WITNESS: He said, “Where am I, Cathy?”

    ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?

    WITNESS: My name is Susan.


    ATTORNEY: Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?

    WITNESS: We both do.

    ATTORNEY: Voodoo?

    WITNESS: We do.

    ATTORNEY: You do?

    WITNESS: Yes, voodoo.


    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 twenty-year-old, how old is he?

    WITNESS: Uh, he’s twenty-one..


    ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?

    WITNESS: Would you repeat the question?


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

    WITNESS: Yes.

    ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?

    WITNESS: Uh….


    ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?

    WITNESS: Yes.

    ATTORNEY: How many were boys?

    WITNESS: None.

    ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?


    ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?

    WITNESS: By death.

    ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?


    ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?

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

    ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?


    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 my autopsies are performed on dead people.


    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 p.m.

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

    WITNESS: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy on him!


    ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?

    WITNESS: Huh?


    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: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?

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

      This is terrible

      by ozi eagle ·

      In reply to Friday Yuk

      It’s a very sad world we live in when Sir Paul McCartney and his wife are facing divorce and all anyone seems to want to do is make jokes about her false leg. Personally, I think it’s prosthetic!

      News reports have confirmed that Paul McCartney has separated from his wife Heather Mills- McCartney. Mrs Mills- McCartney is said to be distraught over the split. “He has been my crutch for so long”!

      She said in an earlier briefing, I have no idea why this has happened, I’m stumped?

      “She’s running around in circles”, according to a close friend, she will need all the support she can get its not like it’s easy to walk out on a relationship like this.

      It is not known whether a pre-nuptial agreement was signed prior to the marriage, Paul McCartney is one of the richest men in the world amassing a colossal wealth due to his participation with The Beatles and subsequent musical collaborations, if an agreement hasn’t been signed it is believed that she wont have a leg to stand on.

      Rumours abound over the split have suggested that infidelity may have been the cause. “She’s terrible” a source stated, “always trying to get her leg over”.

      Another source has suggested that her battle with alcoholism was the cause.
      “Macca couldn’t handle it anymore” a friend said, “He would get home at night and find her legless?”

      Many have attributed this to a problem which started with the present that Paul had got prior to the wedding; he gave her a new prosthetic leg for Christmas but that was just a stocking-filler.

      The main gift was a plane but then he gave her a Lady-Shave for the other leg.

      Apparently she wants to keep the plane he bought her for Christmas; she says she’ll buy her own Immac for the other leg!

      A poem by Sir Paul McCartney :

      I lay upon a grassy bank

      My hands were all a quiver

      I slowly removed her suspender belt

      and her leg fell in the river

      A Miner in Africa has an accident and loses a leg. He says to his mate I’m ****ed, who will want a one legged gold digger? His mate says try Paul McCartney

      Q What had 3 legs and lived on a farm?

      A The McCartney’s

      These jokes are funny but let’s spare a thought for Paul please. Now she has left him, he’s going to struggle to find another lady that can fill her shoe.

      Employee rules and regulations

      Dress Code

      It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary.
      If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore do not need a raise. If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore do not need a raise.

      Sick Days
      We will no longer accept a doctor’s statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

      Personal Days
      Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

      Toilet Use
      Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of the three
      minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open and a picture will be taken. After your second offence, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the “Chronic
      Offenders category”. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sanctioned under the company’s mental health policy!

      Lunch Break
      Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to
      get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Fat people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that’s all the time needed to drink a slim fast.

      Thank you for your loyalty to our company.

      We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore,all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations,
      aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

      My mom worked as a legal secretary for years and she was going to write a book about this stuff. Looks like someone beat her to it.

      She once told me of a case, where the defendent described their car accident and said, “Well I was just driving along when the tree jumped out and hit me”

      Last Request
      Ken was on his death bed and gasped pitifully.
      “Promise to fulfill my last request, Cindy,” he said.
      “Of course, Ken,” his wife said softly.
      “Six months after I die,” he said, “I want you to marry Tim.”
      “But I thought you hated Tim,” she said.
      With his last breath, Ken said, “I do!”

      Larry’s Bar
      A man goes to a shrink and says, “Doctor, my wife is unfaithful to me. Every evening, she goes to Larry’s bar and picks up men. If fact, she goes to bed with anybody who asks her! I’m going crazy. What do you think I should do?”
      “Relax,” says the Doctor, “take a deep breath and calm down. Now, tell me, where exactly is Larry’s bar?”

      The First Man?
      A man picks up a young woman in a bar and convinces her to come back to his hotel.
      When they are relaxing afterwards, he asks, “Am I the first man you ever made love to?”
      She looks at him thoughtfully for a second before replying.
      “You might be,” she says. “Your face does look familiar!”

      Man goes to see the Rabbi
      “Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it.”
      The Rabbi asked, “What’s wrong?”
      The man replied, “My wife is poisoning me.”
      The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, “How can that be?”
      The man then pleads, “I’m telling you, I’m certain she’s poisoning me, what should I do?”
      The Rabbi then offers, “Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I’ll see what I can find out and I’ll let you know.”
      The next day the Rabbi calls the man and says, “Well, I spoke to your wife.
      I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. Do you want to hear my advice?”
      The man anxiously says, “Yes, YES!”
      “Take the poison,” says the Rabbi.

      French Ban Fireworks at Euro Disney
      (AP), Paris, March 5, 2003
      The French Government announced today that it is imposing a ban on the use of fireworks at Euro Disney.

        Every one knows Bubba!!!!

        by s_k_k ·

        In reply to Frenchisms!

        There was a man named Bubba and Bubba knew EVERYONE in the whole world!!! Once when Bubba got a new job, Bubba says to his new boss, “Boss, I know everyone in the whole world!” His boss doesn’t believe him, so he says “No you do not know everyone in the whole world” but Bubba says “Yes I do!” so Bubba’s boss says “Well prove it!” then Bubba says “Pick someone… and I know them!”
        Well Bubba’s boss thinks for a minute and then comes up with a name. “Tom Selleck! I bet you don’t know Tom Selleck!” Bubba says “Tom Selleck! Tom and I were in boy scouts together when we were kids!” but Bubba’s boss says “No you weren’t!” then Bubba says “Yes we were!” so they fly to Hollywood and drive up to Tom Selleck’s house. Bubba knocks on the door and Tom Selleck answers and Bubba goes “Tom!!!” and Tom goes “Bubba!” and they hug and catch up for 30 minutes and Bubba’s boss can’t believe it. But then he thinks “Well that could happen, it’s just one person,” so he tells Bubba and Bubba says “OK, pick somebody else!”
        This time Bubba’s boss has someone in mind! “The president, Bill Clinton! You don’t know Bill Clinton!” but Bubba says “Oh yes I do! Bill and I were on debate team together in college!” Bubba’s boss says “No you weren’t!” and Bubba says “Yes we were!” so they fly to Washington and they catch up with the President at a press conference. They work their way through the crowd until Bubba get’s close enough to catch Clinton’s eye and waves “Bill!” and the President waves “Bubba!” and after the press conference they hug and catch up for 30 minutes and Bubba’s boss is stunned– he can’t believe it. But then he thinks “Well that’s just two people in one country– that doesn’t mean he knows everyone in the whole world!” so he tells Bubba and Bubba says “OK, pick someone out of the world spectrum and I know them!”
        And Bubba’s boss knows just who to pick so he says “The Pope! You do not know the Pope!” and Bubba says “The Pope! The Pope BAPTIZED me!” and Bubba’s boss says “No he didn’t!” and Bubba says “Yes he did!” so they fly to Rome where the Pope is giving Mass in front of hundreds of thousands of people. They work their way through the crowd– without much luck– so Bubba says “Boss, we’re never gonna get there together through all these people so I tell you what–I’ll work my way up there and when I do, I’ll give you a sign that shows you I know the Pope!” and he leaves. Well Bubba’s boss waits and waits and waits and just when he’s about to give up, he sees the Pope come out onto the balcony and right there beside him is Bubba!
        Shortly afterwards, Bubba’s boss passes out. Bubba comes back and finds his boss passed out and he fans him and says “Boss! Boss! Wake up!” and when his boss comes to, he asks “Boss what happened?” Bubba’s boss looks at Bubba and says “OK, I can see Tom Selleck. I can see Bill Clinton… heck, I can even take the Pope! But when somebody standing next to me asks ‘Who’s that up there with Bubba?’ that’s a little more than I can take! –“
