Mildly amusing - probably true...

A man in a hot-air balloon realised he was lost, so he reduced altitude
and spotted a woman below. He shouted “Excuse me, can you help
me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know
where I am.”
The woman replied “You are in a hot-air balloon hovering approximately
30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north
latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.”
“You must be a junior solicitor” said the balloonist.
“I am” replied the woman. “How did you know?”
“Well” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically
correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the
fact is, I am still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help so far.”
The woman responded “You must be a partner!”
“I am” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know?”
“Well” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you
are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of
hot air. You made promises which you have no idea how to keep, and
you expect me to solve your problems. The fact is, you are in exactly
the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s
my fault.”

Q: What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 70?

A: Your honor.


"...pour out of one vessel into another; and as those old Romans robbed all the cities in the world, we skim the cream of other men's wits, pick the choice flowers of their tilled gardens to set our own sterile plots."
