‘Make no mistake. Canada is not a bilingual country. In fact
it is less bilingual today than it has ever been.’
– Canadian PM Stephan Harper



True Story 


The following are from a book  called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually  said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court  reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges  were actually taking place.

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said  to you that morning?
WITNESS:     He said , ‘Where am I,  Cathy?’
ATTORNEY:  And why did that upset you?
WITNESS:      My name is  Susan!


ATTORNEY:   What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS:      Gucci sweats and Reeboks

ATTORNEY:   Are you sexually active?
WITNESS:     No , I just lie  there.


ATTORNEY:  This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
WITNESS:      Yes.
ATTORNEY:  And in what ways does it affect  your memory?
WITNESS:     I forget..
ATTORNEY:  You  forget?  Can you give us an example of something you  forgot?


ATTORNEY:   Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?
WITNESS:     We both do.
ATTORNEY:   Voodoo?
WITNESS:     We do..
ATTORNEY:  You do?
WITNESS:     Yes, voodoo.



ATTORNEY:   Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep ,  he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS:  Did you actually pass the bar exam?


ATTORNEY:  The  youngest son , the 20-year-old , how old is he?
WITNESS:       He’s 20, much like your  IQ.


ATTORNEY:  Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS:     Are you having me on?


ATTORNEY:   So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
WITNESS:     Yes.
ATTORNEY:  And what were you doing at that time?
WITNESS:     What do you imagine I was doing?


ATTORNEY:   She had three children, right?
WITNESS:      Yes.
ATTORNEY:  How many were boys?
WITNESS:   None.
ATTORNEY:    Were there any girls?
WITNESS:      Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new  attorney?


ATTORNEY:   How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS:      By death..
ATTORNEY:  And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS:     Take a guess.


ATTORNEY:   Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS:     He was  about medium height and had a beard
ATTORNEY:  Was this a male  or a female?
WITNESS:     Unless the Circus was in town I’m going with male.


ATTORNEY:  Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which  I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS:  No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
ATTORNEY:   Doctor , how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead  people?
WITNESS:     All of them.. The live ones put up too much of a fight.


ATTORNEY:   ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
WITNESS:      Oral…


ATTORNEY:   Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS:      The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
ATTORNEY:  And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS:     If not, he was by the time I  finished.


ATTORNEY:   Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS:      Are you qualified to ask that question?


And last:

ATTORNEY:  Doctor, before you performed the autopsy,  did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS:     No.
ATTORNEY:   Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS:      No.
ATTORNEY:  Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS:      No..
ATTORNEY:  So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
WITNESS:      No.
ATTORNEY:  How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS:      Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a  jar.
ATTORNEY:  I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS:     Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

Mexican Cyclist

A man on a bike, carrying two saddlebags, was stopped by a guard while crossing the US-Mexican border.  He had rigged up a primitive rope bridge to by-pass the customs control.

‘What’s in the bags? demanded the guard.
‘Sand,’ the cyclist answered.
‘Take them off. I need to take a look.’ retorted the guard.

The guard emptied the bags and found out they contained nothing but sand. The man reloaded his bags and continued across the border. A week later, the same man was crossing again with two more bags. The guard demanded to see them, and again they contained nothing but sand. This continued every week for six months, until one day the cyclist failed to appear. A few days later, that same guard ran into the cyclist in Tijuana.

‘Hey, where have you been?’ the guard enquired. ‘You sure had us wondering. We knew you were smuggling something across the border. So tell me and I won’t say a word. What was it?’

The man smiled broadly and told him the truth, ‘Bicycles!’


Phone for help

One March evening, the boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers, dialled the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.


‘Is your daddy home?’ he asked.

‘Yes, ‘whispered the small voice.

May I talk with him?’

The child whispered, ‘No.’

Surprised, and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, ‘Is your Mommy there?’


May I talk with her?’

Again the small voice whispered, ‘No.’

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, ‘Is anybody else there?’

‘Yes, ‘whispered the child, ‘a policeman.’

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, ‘May I speak with the policeman?’

‘No, he’s busy’, whispered the child.

‘Busy doing what?’

‘Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman, ‘came the whispered answer.

Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a Helicopter through the earpiece on the phone the boss asked, ‘What is that noise?’

‘A hello-copper’ answered the whispering voice.

‘What is going on there?’ asked the boss, now truly alarmed.

In an awed whispering voice the child answered, ‘The search team just landed the hello-copper.’

Alarmed, concerned, and even more then just a little frustrated the boss asked, ‘What are they searching for?’

Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: ‘ME.’



Legal but not Logical!

 A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.

Student: ‘Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?’

Professor: ‘Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn’t be a professor, would I?’

Student: ‘OK. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my marks as it is. If you can’t give me the correct answer, however, you’ll have to give me an ‘A’.

Professor: ‘Hmmmm, alright. So what’s the question?’

Student: ‘What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal? ‘

The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can’t crack the answer. Finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark into an ‘A’ as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased.

The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but still can’t get the answer. So finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really tough question to answer: ‘What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal? ‘

To the professor’s surprise (and embarrassment), all the students immediately raise their hands.

‘All right’ says the professor and asks his favourite student to answer

‘It’s quite easy, sir’ says the student ‘You see, you are 75 years old and married to a 30 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 22 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. And your wife’s lover failed his exam but you’ve just given him an ‘A’, which is neither legal, nor logical.’


The Scouser and the Memory Man


A scouser is on holiday in Arizona USA. He’s staying in a remote
frontier type town and walks into a bar .

He orders his drink and sits down at the bar when he notices a native
American Indian, dressed in full regalia, feathered head dress,
tomahawk, spear, the lot, sitting in the corner under a sign saying
‘Ask me anything’

The scouser is intrigued and asks the barman about him.

‘Oh, we call him the memory man, He knows everything.’ says the barman.

‘What do you mean he knows everything?’ asks the scouser.

‘Well, he knows every fact there is to know and he never, ever forgets

‘Yeah  right ‘ says the scouser.

‘If you don’t believe me, try him out. Ask him anything, and he’ll know
the answer’

‘Alright’ says the Scouser and walks up to the Memory Man.

‘Where am I from?’

‘Knotty Ash, Liverpool , England ‘ says the Red Indian. And he was

‘Alright’ says the scouser, ‘that was easy you probably recognised my

accent. Who won the 1965 FA Cup Final?’

‘ Liverpool ‘ says the memory man quick as a flash.

‘Yes and who did they play?’

‘Leeds United’ again without blinking

‘And the score?’

‘2-1’ says the memory man without hesitation.

‘Pretty good,but I bet you don’t know who scored the winning goal?’

‘Ian St John’ says the Indian in an instant.

Flabbergasted the tourist continues on his holiday and on his return to
Birkenhead tells all and sundry about the amazing Memory Man. He just
can’t get him out of his mind and so he vows to return and find him
again and pay him his due respect .

He saves his dole money for years and finally twelve years later he has
saved enough and returns to the states in search of the memory

He searches high and low for him. And after two weeks of trying
virtually every bar and town in Arizona he finds him sitting in a cave
in the mountains, older, greyer and more wrinkled than before but still
resplendent in his warpaint and full regalia.

The scouser, duly humbled approaches him and decides to greet him in
the traditional manner..


The memory man squints at the scouser.

‘Flying header in the six yard box.’

Different Perspective
A British Army Colonel was walking down Oxford Street in London, when he saw a man with no arms and no legs sitting on the pavement playing a mouth organ.

A sign beside the chap read, ‘Victim of the Falklands War. ‘
‘I say how disgraceful, eh? ‘said the colonel, ‘the way the country treats its veterans. ‘So saying, he pulled out his wallet and peeled off two fifty pound notes and dropped them in the ex-soldier’s hat.

The veteran looked up and said, ‘Muchas gracias, senor.’
