A doctor and a lawyer in two cars collided on a country road. The lawyer, seeing that the doctor was a little shaken up, helped him from the car and offered him a drink from his hip flask. The doctor accepted and handed the flask back to the lawyer, who closed it and put it away.
"Aren't you going to have a drink yourself?" asked the doctor.
"Sure, after the police leave." replied the lawyer.


A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice.
After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people for asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?"
"I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "And then I send them a bill."
The doctor was shocked, but however, agreed to give it a try.
The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.


A woman, who was diagnosed as being terminally ill, was told she needed a brain transplant using a 1-1/2 pound brain. She was also informed that a 1-1/2 pound brain of a surgeon would cost $500 and a 1-1/2 pound brain of a movie star would cost $600.
She replied that since her father had been a famous lawyer, she would prefer a lawyer's brain.
"That's fine," she was told, "but that will cost you $10,000."
"What?" she replied incredulously, "If a surgeon's brain only costs only $500, why does a lawyer's brain cost $10,000?"
"Do you have any idea how many lawyers it takes to get 1-1/2 pound of brain?" the doctor replied.
