I heard a good lawyer joke on Jay Leno tonight:
So an engaged couple gets into a car accident and they die.
They're on their way up to heaven and they get to thinking, "It sure would be nice to still get married." As St. Peter is ushering them through the Pearly Gates, the couple stops him and asks, "Is it possible to get married in heaven?"
At that St. Peter says, "That's a good question. Wait right here and I'll go ask."
So St. Peter goes through the gates, but he doesn't come back right away. Time passes and the couple starts to think, "Gee, heaven is forever. What if we don't love each other forever - is it possible to get a divorce in heaven?" Yet they're still waiting, and months pass before St. Peter finally comes back.
"Yes. You can get married in heaven," he says. As St. Peter starts leading them through the gates, the couple stops him again. "St. Peter, is it possible to get a divorce in heaven?"
St. Peter replied, "Do you really want to know? You saw how long it took me to find a priest. How long do you think it'll take me to find a lawyer???!!!"
Ba dum dum.
