46. The Lawyer

The client phoned up his lawyer and said: “What is going on? Give me the news.”

The lawyer said: “News? I have great news for you. Truth has at last won. You have lost the case.”

The client said: “I have some good news for you. You are a rascal, your father is a scoundrel, and your grandfather was a jackal, and your great-grandfather was a squirrel.”
