A woman was found guilty in traffic court and when asked for her occupation she said she was a schoolteacher.
The judge rose from the bench. “Madam, I have waited years for a schoolteacher to appear before this court.”
He smiled with delight. “Now sit down at that table and write ‘I will not run a red light’ five hundred times.”
An Uber is cruising down a boulevard when it runs a red light.
“Hey!” the passenger shouts. “Be careful!”
“Don’t worry,” says the driver. “My brother does it all the time.”
He barrels through the next red light, and the passenger screams, “Stop doing that!”
“I’m telling you, my brother does this all the time.”
They approach the next light. Just when it turns green, the driver slams on the brakes. The confused passenger asks, “You just ran two red lights; why’d you stop at a green?”
“I had to,” says the driver. “My brother might have been coming.”
A woman was sued by a man for defamation of character.
He charged that she had called him a pig.
She was found guilty and fined.
After the trial, she asked the judge: “Does this mean I cannot call Mr. Johnson a pig?”
The judge said that was true.
“Does this mean I cannot call a pig Mr. Johnson?” asked the woman.
The judge replied that she could indeed call a pig Mr. Johnson with no fear of being charged with a crime.
The woman turned, looked directly at Mr. Johnson, and said, “Good afternoon, Mr. Johnson.”
