Read the following jokes. Try to retell them. You may do it in Russian:
1. A friend of a judge dropped in for a visit one morning before court opened
and looked around. «Goodness, you certainly have a lot of criminals to try this
morning, haven’t you?» he observed.
«Oh, not so many», answered the judge. «You are looking at the wrong bench – those are lawyers».
2. Lawyer: «Now that we have won, will you tell me confidentially if you stole
Client: «Well, after hearing you talk in court yesterday, I am beginning to think I didn’t».
3. Judge: «Have you anything to say before I pass sentence on you?»
Prisoner: «Yes, Your Honour, I should like you to have your lunch first».
4. A man was accused of stealing a pair of trousers. After a long examination
he was acquitted, because the evidence against him was not sufficiently strong. He
stayed, however, in the dock after his acquittal had been pronounced. The
lawyer who had defended him, observing that he didn’t go away, informed him
that he was free to go whenever he wanted. The man shook his head slightly,
but remained. By this time the court was nearly empty. Again his lawyer told
him that he could go.
«I can’t go till all the witnesses against me have left the court», said the man.
«And why may that be?» asked the lawyer.
«Because of the stolen trousers, sir. I’ve got them on».
5. The defence lawyer was cross-examining a witness. He asked, «And you say
you called on Mrs. Jones, May second. Now will you tell the jury what she
said?» «I object the question», interrupted the prosecutor. There was nearly an
hour’s argument between the counsels and finally the judge allowed the
question. «And as I was saying», the defence lawyer began again, «on May
second you called on Mrs. Jones. Now what did she say?» «Nothing», replied
the witness. «She was not at home».
