Lawyers Don't Lie.........Do They?


A Lawyer had a wife and 12 children and needed to move as his rental agreement was coming to an end on the home where he  lived. He was having a very difficult time in finding a new place to rent.
When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they knew that his 12 children would destroy the Home.
 

He could not say that he had no children, because that would be a lie,  After all, everybody knows that lawyers cannot and would not purposely lie.
 

So, he had an idea…… he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of his 12 children.
 

He took the remaining one with him to look at several homes with the  real estate agent.
 

Finally, he found a home he really liked and the agent got the necessary paperwork out and asked:
“How many children do you have?”
He answered, “12 children, but only one is with me now.”
The agent asked “Where are the others?”
The lawyer answered, with a very sad look on his face, “They are in the cemetery with their Mother.”
 

And, that's how was able to rent a home for his Family without lying.
 

MORAL: It is not necessary to lie! One only has to  be creative and choose the right words.
Please remember this: Lawyers don't lie! They are  creative! And, don't forget this very important fact……Most politicians are lawyers!


Thanks David

  1. That last point is crucial.

    If you've ever testified, you know what the lawyer tells you not to say is as crucial as what he does.

  2. Yep, this is very true. I've been on the witness stand many times and some are masters with examination and cross examination.

    Have a fabulous day, Odie. ☺
