Lawyer vacancy

There was a job opening in the country’s most prestigious law firm and it finally came down to Robert and Paul.

Both graduated magna cum laude from law school. Both came from good families. Both were equally attractive and well spoken. It was up to the senior partner to choose one, so he took each aside and asked, “Why did you become a lawyer?”

In seconds, he chose Paul.

Baffled, Robert took Paul aside.

“I don’t understand why I was rejected. When Mr Armstrong asked me why I became a lawyer, I said that I had the greatest respect for the law, that I’d lay down my life for the Constitution and that all I wanted was to do right by my clients. What in the world did you tell him?”

“I said I became a lawyer because of my hands,” Robert replied.

“Your hands? What do you mean?”

“Well, I took a look one day and there wasn’t any money in either of them!”

The mischievous kids

There were three little boys visiting their grandparents.

The oldest came out and asked his grandpa, “Can you make a sound like a frog, Grandpappy?

Grandpa (being in a kind of ill mood) responded, “No, I don’t really want to make the sound of a frog now.”

So, the second little boy came out and asked his grandfather, “Will you please make a sound like a frog?”

Grandpa again said, “No, not now. I don’t really want to do that. I’m in a grumpy mood. May be later.”

Then the third little boy came out and said, “Grandpa, oh please... Please, please will you make a sound like a frog?”

“Why do all of you boys want me to make a sound like a frog?” Grandpa asked.

The little boy replied with a hopeful face, “Well, mom said that when you croak we get to go to the Disney World!”
