IT CAN BE HARD KEEPING A STRAIGHT FACE AS A COURT REPORTER
These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.
In a trial, a small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me"? She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, cheat on your wife, manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize that you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes I know you".
The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones do you know the defense attorney"?
She again replied, "Why yes I do. I've know Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He is lazy, bigoted and has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him".
The defense attorney nearly died.
The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and i a very quiet voice , said "If either of you idiots ask if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair"
Jack was sitting in an airplane when another guy took the seat beside him.
The new guy was an absolute wreck, pale, hands shaking,
biting his nails and moaning in fear. "Hey, pal, what's the matter?"
Jack asked. "Oh man... I've been transferred to California," the other guy answered.
"There's crazy people in California and they have shootings,
gangs, race riots, drugs, the highest crime rate..."
"Hold on," Jack interrupted, "I've lived in California all my life, and it is not as
bad as the media says. Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own
business, enroll your kids in a good school and it's as safe as anywhere in the world."
The other passenger relaxed and stopped shaking for a moment and said,
"Oh, thank you. I've been worried to death, but if you live there and say it's OK,
I'll take your word for it. What do you do for a living?"
"Me?" said Jack, "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck in Oakland."

Stock Quote :
I called my stockbroker this morning and asked him what I should be buying.
He said, "Canned goods and ammunition."

A Preacher was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to Texas .
After the plane took off, the cowboy asked for a whiskey and soda, which
was brought and placed before him.
The flight attendant then asked the preacher if he would like a drink.
Appalled, the preacher replied, "I'd rather be tied up and taken advantage of
by women of ill-repute, than let liquor touch my lips."
The cowboy then handed his drink back to the attendant and said,
"Me too, I didn't know we had a choice."
DADDY SLEEPS NAKED
'Late again,' the third-grade teacher said to little Sammy. 'It ain't my fault this time, Miss Crabtree.
You can blame this 'one on my Daddy. The reason I'm three hours late is my Daddy sleeps naked!'
Now Miss Crabtree had taught grammar school for thirty-odd years. Despite her mounting fears, she asked little Sammy what he meant by that.
Full of grins and mischief, and in the flower of his youth, little Sammy and trouble were old friends, but he always told her the truth.
'You see, Miss Crabtree, out at the ranch we got this here low down coyote. The last few nights he done et six hens and killed Ma's best milk goat.
Last night, when Daddy heard a noise out in the chicken pen, he grabbed his shot gun and said to Ma; 'That darn coyote's back again,
I'm a gonna git him!'' 'Stay back,' he whispered to all us kids.
He was naked as a jaybird, no boots, no pants, no shirt! To the hen house he crawled, just like an Injun on the snoop.
Then he stuck that double barreled 12-gauge shot gun through the window of the coop. As he stared into the darkness, with coyote on his mind,
our old hound dog Zeke had done woke up and comes sneakin' up behind Daddy.
Then as we all looked on plumb helpless, old Zeke stuck his cold nose right into Daddy's backside crack!
'Miss Crabtree, we all been cleanin' chickens since three o'clock this mornin'!'

Here is something for you to ponder
An ode of English Plural....
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes, But the plural of ox
becomes oxen, not oxes. One fowl is a goose, but two are called
geese, Yet the plural of moose should never be meese. You may find a
lone mouse or a nest full of mice, Yet the plural of house is houses,
If the plural of man is always called men, Why shouldn't the plural
of pan be called pen? If I speak of my foot and show you my feet, And
I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet? If one is a tooth
and a whole set are teeth, Why shouldn't the plural of booth be
Then one may be that, and there would be those, Yet hat in the plural
would never be hose, And the plural of cat is cats, not cose. We speak
of a brother and also of brethren, But though we say mother, we never
say methren. Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him, But
imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!
Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in
eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England. We take English for
granted, but if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can
work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from
Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't
groce and hammers don't ham? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make
amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get
rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats
vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the
folks who grew up speaking English should be committed to an asylum
for the verbally insane.
In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a
recital? We ship by truck but send cargo by ship... We have noses
that run and feet that smell. We park in a driveway and drive in a
parkway. And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,
while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your
house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by
filling it out, and in which an alarm goes off by going on.
And in closing, if Father is Pop, how come Mother's not Mop?
JOKE OF THE YEAR 2010
Two women were sitting quietly together, minding their own business.
just for something different
I went to a Muslim strip club last night ....everyone kept chanting "show us your face " "show us your face"
Paddy is passing by Mick's hay shed one day when, through a gap in the door, he sees Mick doing a slow and sensual striptease in front of his old red Massey Ferguson.
Buttocks clenched, he performs a slow pirouette and gently slides off first to the right, then to the left.
He then hunches his shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move, lets his braces fall down from his shoulders to dangle by his hips over his corduroy trousers.
Grabbing both sides of his checked shirt, he rips it apart to reveal his tea stained vest underneath and with a final flourish he hurls his cap on to a pile of hay.
"What on earth are you doing, Mick?" says Paddy.
"Jeez Paddy, ye frightened the livin bejasus out of me!" says an obviously embarrassed Mick.
"But me and the Missus been having some trouble lately in the bedroom department and the therapist suggested I do something sexy to a tractor! "
A dog lover, whose dog was a female and in heat, agreed to look after and
house her neighbor's male dog while they were away on vacation. She had
a large house and believed that she could keep the dogs apart. The first
night, as she was drifting off to sleep she heard awful howling and moaning
sounds. She rushed downstairs and found the dogs locked together, in
obvious pain and unable to disengage.
Unable to separate them she panicked and called the vet. It was late and he
answered in a very grumpy voice. Explaining the problem to him, the vet
said. "Hang up the phone and place it alongside the dogs. I will call you
back and the noise of the ringing will make the male lose his erection and
be able to withdraw."
"Do you think that will work?" she asked.
"It just worked for me" he replied.
