Title:     Czech & lawyer
Date:      Mon Nov 22 15:03:36 1999


A certain lawyer was quite wealthy and had a summer house in the country,
to which he retreated for several weeks of the year.  Each summer, the
lawyer would invite a different friend of his (no, that's not the punch
line) to spend a week or two up at this place, which happened to be in a
backwoods section of Maine.  On one particular occasion, he invited a
Czech friend to stay with him.  The friend, eager to get a freebee off a 
lawyer, agreed.  Well, they had a splendid time in the country - rising early 
and living in the great outdoors.  Early one morning, the lawyer and his 
Czech companion went out to pick berries for their morning breakfast.  As they 
went around the berry patch, gathering blueberries and raspberries in 
tremendous quantities, along came two huge Bears - a male and a female.  Well, 
the lawyer, seeing the two bears, immediately dashed for cover. His friend, 
though, wasn't so lucky, and the male bear reached him and swallowed him 
whole.  The lawyer ran back to his Mercedes, tore into town as fast has he 
could, and got the local backwoods sheriff. The sheriff grabbed his shotgun 
and dashed back to the berry patch with the lawyer.  Sure enough, the two 
bears were still there.  "He's in THAT one!" cried the lawyer, pointing to the 
male, while visions of lawsuits from his friend's family danced in his head. 
He just had to save his friend.  The sheriff looked at the bears, and without 
batting an eye, leveled his gun, took careful aim, and SHOT THE FEMALE. 
"Whatdya do that for!" exclaimed the lawyer, "I said he was in the other!" 
"Exactly," replied the sheriff, "and would YOU believe a lawyer who told you 
that the Czech was in the Male?"
