Equally dishonest lawyers

Taking his seat in his chambers, the judge faced the opposing lawyers.

“So,” he said, “I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe.”

Both lawyers squirmed uncomfortably. “You, attorney Paulson, gave me $15,000. And you, attorney Hendren, gave me $10,000.”

The judge reached into his pocket and pulled out a check. He handed it to Paulson. “Now then, I’m returning $5,000, and we’re going to decide this case solely on its merits!”

Quebec is now a nanny state

A 12 year old girl in Canada was grounded by her father for chatting on websites that he attempted to block and for posting pictures of herself.  The girl used a lawyer involved in her parents’ custody battle, took him to court, and had her punishment overturned!

I’m sure any parent (and pretty much anyone without kids as well) would agree that unless there is abuse involved, the courts have absolutely no !&*^ business interfering with how a parent raises his or her children. What on earth was the judge thinking?!?

On second thought, earth has nothing to do with it, as the judge is clearly from a different planet. If she is representative of other life forms, then maybe humans are the most  intelligent life forms in the universe…
