April Fool’s day may have passed, but that’s no reason to lose our sense of humor. Here’s some of our favorites to lighten the mood and take the hotheads down a notch (and lawyers need that more than most). Here are some of the favorites:

Q: What’s wrong with lawyer jokes?
A: Lawyers don’t think they’re funny and other people don’t think they’re jokes.

Q: Why are there so many lawyers in the U.S.?
A: Because St. Patrick chased the snakes out of Ireland.

Q: What’s the difference between an accountant and a lawyer?
A: Accountants know they’re boring.

Q: What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 100?
A: Your Honor.

Q: What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50?
A: Senator.

Q: How does an attorney sleep?
A: First he lies on one side and then on the other.

Q: How many lawyers does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Three. One to climb the ladder. One to shake it. And one to sue the ladder company.

A Lawyer Keeps His Promise
A dying man gives each of his best friends—a lawyer, doctor and clergyman—an envelope containing $25,000 in cash to be placed in his coffin.

A week later the man dies and the friends each place an envelope in the coffin. Several months later, the clergyman confesses that he only put $10,000 in the envelope and sent the rest to a mission in South America.

The doctor confesses that his envelope had only $8,000 because he donated to a medical charity.

The lawyer is outraged, “I am the only one who kept my promise to our dying friend. I want you both to know that the envelope I placed in the coffin contained my own personal check for the entire $25,000.”

Take one of these zingers along with you next time you meet with your attorney!
