In a murder trial, the defense attorney was cross-examining a
pathologist. Here's what happened:
Attorney: Before you signed the death certificate, had you
taken the pulse?
Attorney: Did you listen to the heart?
Attorney: Did you check for breathing?
Attorney: So, when you signed the death certificate, you weren't
sure the man was dead, were you?
Coroner: Well, let me put it this way. The man's brain was sitting
in a jar on my desk. But I guess it's possible he could be out there
practicing law somewhere.
