The Joke's on ... Lawyers

The Joke's on ... Lawyers

By Ysaiah Ross

Question: How many lawyer jokes are in existence?
Answer: Only three. All the rest are true stories.

Jokes about lawyers - prolific, terrible, hilarious, cruel - this book is full of them. But why so many? Why do we find lawyers so funny? It used to be the Irish. Or blondes. Why is it lawyers today? And why does no one defend them? Has it always been so? Stan Ross fills the pages with joke after joke as he ponders why.

The book is broken into the following groupings, with an introduction to each setting the context.

  • Why jokes on lawyers?
  • Devious, untrustworthy and unethical
  • Technicians, inhuman, boring, pompous, incomprehensible and useless
  • Hateful and contemptible
  • Too numerous
