Lawyer: Is there a problem, officer?
Officer: Yes, you were speeding.
Lawyer: Ah, okay.
Officer: Can I see your driver’s license?
Lawyer: Well, I’d give it to you if I had one, but I don’t.
Officer: You don’t have a driver’s license?
Lawyer: Nope. Had it taken away from me 10 years ago when I got caught speeding in front of a school. Oh yeah, I was drunk at the time, too.
Officer: All right then. Can I at least see the registration?
Lawyer: Can’t help you there either.
Officer: And why not?
Lawyer: I stole this car and had to kill the owner to do it. There might be a registration in here somewhere, but it won’t have my name on it.
Officer: Are you telling me you murdered someone?
Lawyer: I had to! He would have reported me to the police and I would’ve ended up in jail!
At this point the officer is totally overwhelmed.
He thought he was just pulling someone over for speeding and now he’s dealing with a murderer. He decides that he needs some backup and puts out the call on the radio.
A few minutes later, a sergeant shows up and the officer explains the situation to him. Then the sergeant approaches the lawyer…
Sergeant: Please get out of your vehicle.
Lawyer: What’s the problem?
Sergeant: My colleague tells me that you stole this car and murdered the owner.
Lawyer: I did what?!
Sergeant: Is this your car?
Lawyer: Yes, of course. Here’s the registration.
Sergeant: But you don’t have a license?
Lawyer: Of course I do. I wouldn’t be operating a motor vehicle if I didn’t.
The lawyer pulls out his wallet, takes out his license and hands it to the sergeant. The sergeant is completely confused…
Sergeant: I don’t get it. You told my colleague that you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car and murdered the owner.
Lawyer: What? He really said that? I bet that liar also told you that I was speeding, too! 😀 😀 😀
