Fitting the Stereotype

Some people say lawyers have no sense of humor. Often, they're right.

Personally, I think lawyer jokes are hilarious, and I couldn't wait to be the punchline (mostly because that meant I passed the bar exam). They're funny because they're awful. The best one I have heard yet was at a suburban Chicago fish fry where a particularly hilarious gentleman told this joke between alternating bites of fried fish and devil's food cake (don't worry, this is normal in the Chicago suburbs):

I have a law firm that I always keep on retainer. You know what it's called? Smith & Wesson.

Horrible. But hilarious, considering the context.
