Joke Robert Sheridan bobsheridan bobsheridan@earthlink.net Lawyers don't mind lawyer jokes.

They mind lawyer jokes that are so old that they've become lame.

They especially won't give you the satisfaction of seeming to appreciate a lame one if they think you're not a lawyer.

The one about "his lips are moving" is so old it's no longer funny except to newcomers. The first time I heard it it was being told by lawyers about cops, in the HOJ elevator, of all places.

If you happen not to be a cop or a lawyer and insist on telling that alleged joke to a cop or a lawyer, you'll be lucky if all you get is groans.

It's a question of judgment, I guess, what jokes you tell and when.

Some of us Islanders are bottom-feeders.
