A trial had been scheduled in a small town, but the court clerk had forgotten to call in a jury panel. Rather than adjourning what he thought was an exceptionally simple case, the judge ordered his bailiff to go through the courthouse and round up enough people to form a jury. The bailiff returned with a group of lawyers.

The prosecutor felt that it would be an interesting experiment to try a case before a jury of lawyers, and the defense counsel had no objection, so a jury was impaneled. And the trial went very quickly -- after only an hour of testimony, and very short closing arguments, both sides rested. The jury was then instructed by the judge, and was sent back to the jury room to deliberate.

After nearly six hours, the trial court was concerned that the jury had not returned with a verdict. The case had in fact turned out to be every bit as simple as he had expected, and it seemed to him that they should have been back in minutes. He sent the bailiff to the jury room, to see if they needed anything.

The bailiff returned, and the judge asked, "Are they close to reaching a verdict?" The bailiff shook his head, and replied, "You're honor, they're still doing nomination speeches for the position of foreman."

What, no javascript?? Oh dear. Oh my.
To experience the awesome wonderfullness of Jokes 'n Fun.com, you really need to enable Javascript.

Really, it's not our fault. We told the web guy that only terrorists use Javascript, but he just whined like a tired child for days and days and so we finally gave in.

Once he was done with the site we hit him over the head and buried him out back, so at least he won't be causing that kind of trouble for anyone else.

Anyway, turn on Javascript and come on in.
