    Best comeback line of the year

    With an apology to Hearsay and atticus, I offer the following story....


    If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the policeman's credibility...

    Q: "Officer -- did you see my client fleeing the scene?"

    A: "No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away."

    Q: "Officer -- who provided this description?"

    A: "The officer who responded to the scene."

    Q: "A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?"

    A: "Yes, sir. With my life."

    Q: "With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?"

    A: "Yes sir, we do!"

    Q: "And do you have a locker in the room?"

    A: "Yes sir, I do."

    Q: "And do you have a lock on your locker?"

    A: "Yes sir."

    Q: "Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?"

    A: "You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room."

    The courtroom erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year's "Best Comeback"

    That is great. It is like many have said, "95% of lawyers give the rest a bad name."

    P.S. Atticus, my son has been assigned to read "To Kill A Mockingbird". I will be renting the video, and I can't wait to watch it with him!

    Awesomefunny.com has what in my opinion is one of the funniest online flash animations EVER with "How to Kill a Mockingbird". It's this kid giving a book report on To Kill a Mockingbird but he only read the first part of it introducing the characters so the kid goes off onto this ridiculous story involving pirates and ninjas... too funny.

    Let me know what your favorite scene is and for that matter which one is his favorite scene. I will bet both of you will love it. It is my favorite movie hands down.
