A housewife, an accountant and a lawyer were asked "How
much is 2 plus 2?" The housewife replies: "Four!" The accountant says:
"I think it's either 3 or 4. Let me run those figures through my spreadsheet
one more time." The lawyer pulls the drapes, dims the lights and asks in
a hushed voice, "How much do you want it to be?"

A lawyer and an engineer were fishing in the Caribbean.
The lawyer said "I'm here 'cause my house burned down and everything I
owned was destroyed by the fire. The insurance company paid for everything."
"That's quite a coincidence," said the engineer, "I'm here 'cause my house

the local butcher shop and steals a roast off the counter. The butcher
goes to the lawyer's office and asks, "if a dog, running unleashed, steals
a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for
the meat from the dog's owner?" "Absolutely," the lawyer responded. The
butcher immediately shot back, "Good! You owe me $7.99 for the roast your

butcher a check for $7.99. A few days later, the butcher, browsing through
his mail, finds an envelope from the lawyer. The contents read "Consultation:
