A dying man gathered his Lawyer, Doctor and Clergyman at his
bed side and handed each of them an envelope containing $25,000
in cash. He made them each promise that after his death and
during his repose, they would place the three envelopes in his
coffin. He told them that he wanted to have enough money to enjoy
the next life.
A week later the man died. At the Wake, the Lawyer and Doctor and Clergyman, each concealed an envelope in the coffin and bid their old client and friend farewell. By chance, these three met several months later. Soon the Clergyman, feeling guilty, blurted out a confession saying that there was only $10,000 in the envelope he placed in the coffin. He felt, rather than waste all the money, he would send it to a Mission in South America. He asked for their forgiveness. The Doctor, moved by the gentle Clergymans sincerity, confessed that he too had kept some of the money for a worthy medical charity. The envelope, he admitted, had only $8000 in it. He said, he too could not bring himself to waste the money so frivolously when it could be used to benefit others.
By this time the Lawyer was seething with self-righteous outrage. He expressed his deep disappointment in the felonious behavior of two of his oldest and most trusted friends. "I am the only one who kept his promise to our dying friend. I want you both to know that the envelope I placed in the coffin contained the full amount. Indeed, my envelope contained my personal check for the entire $25,000."
An attorney was sitting in his office late one night, when
Satan appeared before him. The Devil told the lawyer, "I
have a proposition for you. You can win every case you try, for
the rest of your life. Your clients will adore you, your
colleagues will stand in awe of you, and you will make
embarrassing sums of money. All I want in exchange is your soul,
and the souls of all your friends and law partners."
The lawyer thought about this for a moment, then asked, "So, what's the catch?"
A man walked into a lawyer's office and inquired about the
"$50.00 for three questions", replied the lawyer.
"Isn't that awfully steep?" asked the man.
"Yes," the lawyer replied, "and what was your third question?"
