NASA and the lawyer!

Arguing with a lawyer is like mud wrestling with a pig: after a while you realize that the pig actually enjoys it.

Lawyer was briefing his client, who was about to testify in his own defense. "You must swear to tell the complete truth. Do you understand?" The client replied that he did. The lawyer then asked, "Do you know what will happen if you don't tell the truth?" The client looked back and said, "I imagine that our side will win."

NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent to Mars.  Only one could go and couldn't return to Earth. The first applicant, an engineer, was asked how much he wanted to be paid for going. “A million dollars,” he answered, “because I want to donate it to M.I.T.” The next applicant, a doctor, was asked the same question. He asked for $2 million. “I want to give a million to my family,” he explained, “and leave the other million for the advancement of medical research.” The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how much money he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer’s ear, “Three million dollars.” “Why so much more than the others?” asked the interviewer. The lawyer replied, “If you give me $3 million, I’ll give you $1 million, I’ll keep $1 million, and we’ll send the engineer to Mars.”


  1. You can't beat lawyers jokes. I know many lawyers and some of them give lawyers a really bad name.

    I linked you to Silly Sunday too.

    Have a fabulous day. :)

  2. All good, especially the last one.
