“Yes, Another Lawyer Joke”


A lawyer had a wife and 12 children and needed to move as his rental agreement was coming to an end for the home where he lived.

When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they knew that the children would destroy the home.

But lawyers don’t lie.

He could not say that he had no children, he could not lie, after all, lawyers cannot and do Not lie.

So, he had an idea. He sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 children. He took the remaining one with him to see homes with the real estate agent.

He liked one of the homes and the agent asked, "How many children do you have?"

He answered, "12 children."

The agent asked, "Where are the others?"

The lawyer answered, with a sad look, "They are in the cemetery with their Mother."

And that's the way he was able to rent a home for his family without lying.


It is not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words.

Lawyers don't lie ...they are creative...and don't forget: Most politicians are lawyers.

It does pay to be a good wordsmith. Just look what Gabrial Iglesias has done by changing overweight to "fluffy."  🤣

That is a lawyer that knew how to think and still get what they wanted. A career in politics would await him

This one made me laugh.    My husband talks that way when he feels he needs to.    It never works out for him.    Thanks!
