E OFTEN RECEIVE unsolicited jokes. And oddly enough, many of them are lawyer jokes sent to us by lawyers themselves. (Who says they can't laugh at themselves?)
So at the risk of becoming "Lawyer Joke Central" we decided to provide some of the best ones through this monthly feature. And once in awhile we might even pick a non-lawyer topic, just to share the pain.
We'd like to thank our sponsor e-GiftFaire.com. Their sponsorship makes it possible for us to bring you The Funny Pages and we hope you'll check them out.

A Lot of Bull
A big-city lawyer was representing the railroad in a lawsuit filed by an old rancher. The rancher's prize bull was missing from the section through which the railroad passed. The rancher only wanted to be paid the fair value of the bull.
The case was scheduled to be tried before the justice of the peace in the back room of the general store.
The attorney for the railroad immediately cornered the rancher and tried to get him to settle out of court. The lawyer did his best selling job, and finally the rancher agreed to take half of what he was asking.
After the rancher had signed the release and took the money, the young lawyer couldn't resist gloating a little over his success, telling the rancher, "You know, I hate to tell you this, old man, but I put one over on you. I couldn't have won the case. The engineer was asleep and the fireman was in the caboose when the train went through your ranch that morning. I didn't have one witness to put on the stand. I bluffed you!"
The old rancher replied, "Well, I'll tell you, young feller, I was a little worried about winning that case myself, because that durned bull came home this morning."
