Quote of the Day - It's pretty clear from the more than 60,000 pages of documents that have been released that John Roberts has a great sense of humor. In this memo, he offers a lawyer joke. - Steve Schmidt

MITPC Book Review: How Many Clients Does It Take To Change A Light Bulb?

If you're Giovanni Diviacchi, then it takes 32 pages.  He's written a great, but über-short joke book  of the same name as this headline, obviously someone who's very tired of lawyer jokes.  The subtitle of the book is "A Lawyer Strikes Back," and is just slightly thinner than the MacBook Air. If you haven't read it, then you'll get a kick out his turn of the phrase. 

The book is chock full of lawyer jokes turned on clients. 

My favorite joke in the book, perhaps because my father was a minister, is this one:  "A lawyer asked his long-time attorney to come to his deathbed with a Bible.

'Would you like me to read to you?' asked the lawyer of the client.

The client shook his head weakly and  said, 'No, I want you to find the loopholes.'"

In case you're looking for a few loopholes, you can find the book on Amazon.  You won't stop laughing until the last page.
