These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts of America, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place. ( I really dont know if this book exists or it is true. just sharing something I got in the mail and thought it was funny)

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there

ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.

ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget.
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?
WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.
ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.

ATTORNEY: Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?
WITNESS: We both do.
WITNESS: Yes, voodoo

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar Exam?

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: Uh, he's twenty-one

ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Would you repeat the question?

ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?

ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death.
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?

ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard.
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?

ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.

ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people? WITNESS: All my autopsies are performed on dead people.

ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK?
What school did you go to?

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, ¢®Where am I, Cathy?¢®
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan.

ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy on him!

ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.

ATTORNEY: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

Dang... Pretty funny!!!
I had the longest day ever at my job (11 hours)
I am quite beat
and I needed a good laugh!
and maybe a stiff drink.
Thanks starry!
Enjoy your weekend!
Oh, I have a question?
Are you a professional bloger?
Ha... just kidding!
But, you always reply so quickly.
I have very little time to blog,
and actually do not like to be on
line that much!
If I go to too many blogs...
I find it a bit overwhelming!
Just me though!
I can see you really must enjoy
Take care!

starry nights 5:19 PM  

Well Margie I am not a professional blogger. Right now I am home awaiting my surgery and after that will be back on the job with very little time to blog.So making the best of it while I can.

samuru999 5:27 PM  

Hi Starry...
Hope I did not offend you with my
question hun!
Certaintly did not to mean to if I did!
You have so many people that love to come to your site, because you are so sweet!
Take care!
And, thanks again for those jokes!
I had a glass of wine to unwind
from my crazy day!
I am heading out to see Al gore's
movie now!

ravi,  1:24 AM  

In Punjabi there is a saying that this JE KISSI RONDE NOO HASAYA TEH DUS, JE KISSI RULDE NOO VAYASA TEH DAS..this is how i believe in life..i dont know how my blog or words find mention in ur blog coz i hardly know. Second thing i have yet to learn this art of making a fun of others n more particulary of a woman. The three women i know i had arguments with my mother when i was a child n i still does have an argument with her..2nd my wife sunita..n the 3rd my friend..who unfortunately told a numbers of lies to me..but i still have nt lost confidence in human beings..women need to be respected..n i m really sorry if i had hurted u in any any way. God bless. The International Disorder was abt a lecture that i attended while i was in does nt have any other meaning.
