Taking his seat in his chambers, the judge faced the opposing lawyers.
“So,” he said, “I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe.” Both lawyers squirmed uncomfortably.
“You, attorney Leon, gave me $15,000. And you, attorney Campos, gave me $10,000.”
The judge reached into his pocket and pulled out a check. He handed it to Leon …
“Now then, I’m returning $5,000, and we’re going to decide this case solely on its merits.”
*snort* I think a lot of us fear this is all too real and we just don’t know it, making the joke on us!
Have an epic weekend!
