What do you call 800 attorneys at the bottom of the sea?
A good start.

Some of my best friends are attorneys. Really. Even my dad, although retired.
lawyers, the only group fair game for viscious attacks nmDougSloan

How come Ed gets to call himself disparaging epithets but we don't?!?!?!?!

That reeks of two-faced liberal duplicity if you ask me.

...Oh, wait...crap...I scored a Clinton-esque 15 below. Sh!t.

I think one of the modern PC rules is that you can always disparage your own group. Blacks may use the "N" word liberally; no-one else, even in court to describe a direct quote, is allowed.

15. Sheesh. If you are young enough, there is always time to change. How does the saying go, "there are no liberals in foxholes"? :-)

Actually, I think it's: "there are no athiests in foxholes."

I've taken it a couple of times, and I bounce back and forth in the middle based on how I interpret questions. That, I'm assuming, is how you stinkin' lawyers maintain your lock on the formal processes of modern society--by making things too difficult for us normal people to understand.

May Allah curse your camels with camel spiders and burden your sheep with sand fleas......
what's the difference?DougSloan

Difference? :-)

Lawyers don't usually have an agenda. We are mostly whores/mercenaries, and do whatever our paying clients want us to.

The fact that ordinary people lie, cheat, can't remember, etc., is why the law has become so complex in an attempt to provide protection or predictability for every conceivable problem that may arise.

All lawywers would be out of work instantly if people were two things -- honest and careful.

"O Jesus, dear God and father of the lamb. Who sees us in fetters and in bondage so hard. As you made us Christians between Friday and Monday protect us now from this scum." :-)

and what about a redneck lawyer's dawgs? nmDougSloan

See, you don't get it. YOU didn't capitalize Dawgs. nmOldEdScott

In a related development, my 17-year-old daughter announced last week (really) that she thinks she wants to go to law school. And here I thought that since they closed Mustang Ranch, my worst fears would go unrealized.
That IS offensive.Jon Billheimer

But maybe also the legal profession should look at itself and how it has helped to create such a litigious society. Such negative stereotypes do not grow in a complete vacuum.
