A lawyer's bad day

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
An attorney got home late one evening, after a very taxing day trying to get a stay of execution for a client, James Wright, who was due to be hanged for murder at midnight. His last-minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed. As soonas he got through the door at home, his wife started on him about, "Whattime of night do you call this? Where have you been?" And on and on.

Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he went and poured himself a shot of whisky and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks.

While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and wastold that her husband's client had been granted his stay of executionafter all.

Finally realizing what a day he must have had, she decided to go upstairs to give him the good news. As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband's rear end as he was bent over naked drying his legs and feet.

"They're not hanging Wright tonight," she said.

He whirled around and screamed, "FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, WOMAN DON'T YOU EVER STOP??!!"

Just gotta ask. Were we still hanging people after residential phone installation? I thought along with invention of phones, we'd gone all electric?

Even then, there was the high energy cost of electricity versus the lower cost of recycled hemp.

There might have been some concern over the inmates on death row working out every day on neck muscle exercises!

C'mon, give the guy a break, maybe it's just a 100-year-old joke. Wouldn't be the first here.
