A lawyer let his dog run around town unleashed, and one day the dog stole a leg of lamb from a butcher shop. The butcher went to the lawyer’s office and asked, “If a dog steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment from the dog’s owner?” The lawyer answered, “Of course.”
So the butcher asked for the price of the roast. The lawyer agreed and wrote out a check on the spot. The butcher said, “You’re an honorable man. I’m revising my opinion of lawyers.” He left the office with a smile on his face.
A few days later, of course, he received a bill from the lawyer: $100 for the consultation.
Do other countries have as many lawyer jokes as we do here in the US?
