Lawyer Joke du Jour:
The Divorce Settlement:
On the first day, he sadly packed his belongings into boxes, crates
On the second day, he had the movers come and collect his things.
On the third day, he sat down for the last time at their beautiful
dining-room table, by candle-light; he put on some soft background
music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle
When he’d finished, he went into each and every room and deposited
a few half-eaten shrimps dipped in caviar into the hollow center of the
He then cleaned up the kitchen and left.
On the fourth day, the wife came back with her new boyfriend, and
at first all was bliss.
Then, slowly, the house began to smell.
They tried everything; cleaning, mopping, and airing-out the place.
Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned.
Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to
set off gas canisters, during which time the two had to move out for a few
days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting.
Nothing worked! People stopped coming over to visit.
Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit.
Finally, they couldn’t take the stench any longer, and decided they
had to move, but a month later – even though they’d cut their price in
half – they couldn’t find a buyer for such a stinky house.
Word got out, and eventually even the local realtors refused to return
Finally, unable to wait any longer for a purchaser, they had to borrow
a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.
Then the ex-husband called the woman and asked how things were going.
She told him the saga of the rotting house. He listened politely and said
that he missed his old home terribly and would be willing to reduce his
divorce settlement in exchange for having the house.
Knowing he could have no idea how bad the smell really was, she agreed
on a price that was only 1/10 th of what the house had been worth …but
only if he would sign the papers that very day.
He agreed, and within two hours her lawyers delivered the completed
A week later the woman and her boyfriend stood smiling as they watched
the moving company pack everything to take to their new home … and
just to spite the ex-husband, they even took the curtain rods !!!
I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON’T YOU…?

Blonde Joke du Jour:
We went to see a movie the other night. I sat in an aisle seat as I usually do because it feels a little roomier.
Just as the feature was about to start, a blonde from the center of the row got up and started working her way out.
“Excuse me, sorry, oops, excuse me, pardon me, gotta hurry, oops, excuse me.”
By the time she got to me, I was trying to look around her and I was a little impatient, so I said, “Couldn’t you have
done this a little earlier?”
“No!” she said in a loud whisper. “The ‘TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONE PLEASE’ message just flashed up on the
screen and mine is in the car.”
