A Joke to Brighten Your Day

This one had me laughing out loud so I thought I'd pass it on.  I read it in Country Magazine, one of my favorite mags.

In a trial, a small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, an elderly woman, to the stand.  As he approached her, he asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"

"Yes, Mr. Williams, I know you," she replied.  "I've known you since you were a boy and, frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me.  You lie, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think your a big shot, but you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher."

The lawyer was stunned.  Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?"

"Yes, I do," she replied.  "I've know Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster too.  He's lazy and bigoted.  He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the state."

The judge asked both attorneys to approach the bench.  In a very quiet voice he said,  "If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair."
