Purely an Act of Self Defense, Part 1


As many of you may know, WC is a lawyer. Which means at social occasions, everyone WC sees is overcome with the urge to tell a lawyer joke. In self defense, WC began collecting the things. Nothing stops a would-be wit better than responding to his or her lawyer joke with two or three of your own. Purely in self defense, of course.

WC is gong to share his collection of lawyer jokes with his readers from time to time. We’ll start with the jokes in Q and A format. There’s a lot of them. Read along until they get tedious. You’ll find there’s a limited number of variations on the same few themes. Feel free to quit before the end. That’s kind of the point.
