Joke of the day: Nigeria’s sharpest lawyer


The Defense
counsel at an Abuja High Court had this to say of his client, who had been
accused: “My Lord, what my client did was
merely inserting his arm into her skirt to help her scratch some intangible
areas of her “Something”.

It was his arm, and not himself, that did it! My
Lord, I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offence
committed by his limb. This is my submission”.

“That is well put, Defense counsel’ the judge replied. “Using your logic, I sentence the
defendant’s arm to one year’s imprisonment. He can choose weather or not his
whole body will accompany the arm”
Beaming with
smile, the defendant, with his lawyer’s assistance, dethatched his artificial
limb, laid it on the bench and majestically walked out of the court room into
freedom!
