|#6343||NEVER swerve to hit a lawyer riding a bicycle -- it might be your bicycle.|
|#6344||New Hampshire law forbids you to tap your feet, nod your head, or in|
any way keep time to the music in a tavern, restaurant, or cafe.
|#6345||Of ______course it's the murder weapon. Who would frame someone with a fake?|
|#6346|| Old Barlow was a crossing-tender at a junction where an express train|
demolished an automobile and its occupants. Being the chief witness, his
testimony was vitally important. Barlow explained that the night was dark,
and he waved his lantern frantically, but the driver of the car paid
no attention to the signal.
The railroad company won the case, and the president of the company
complimented the old-timer for his story. "You did wonderfully," he said,
"I was afraid you would waver under testimony."
"No sir," exclaimed the senior, "but I sure was afraid that durned
lawyer was gonna ask me if my lantern was lit."
|#6347||Once he had one leg in the White House and the nation trembled under his |
roars. Now he is a tinpot pope in the Coca-Cola belt and a brother to the
forlorn pastors who belabor halfwits in galvanized iron tabernacles behind
the railroad yards."
-- H.L. Mencken, writing of William Jennings Bryan,
counsel for the supporters of Tennessee's anti-evolution
law at the Scopes "Monkey Trial" in 1925.
|#6348||... Our second completely true news item was sent to me by Mr. H. Boyce|
Connell Jr. of Atlanta, Ga., where he is involved in a law firm. One thing
I like about the South is, folks there care about tradition. If somebody
gets handed a name like "H. Boyce," he hangs on to it, puts it on his legal
stationery, even passes it to his son, rather than do what a lesser person
would do, such as get it changed or kill himself.
-- Dave Barry, "This Column is Nothing but the Truth!"
