Found this one in my dad's little book...Don't know if he wrote it or he read it and just plain liked it....
An attorney was questioning the coroner,
When the brash lawyer said,
"Did you check the pulse of the deceased,
before you pronounced him dead?"
This incensed the coroner,
and his face turned beet red,
In a very disgusted manner,
the coroner just shook his head.
"Surely you checked his breathing?"
The lawyer then inquired,
"No" exclaimed the coroner,
with an expression uninspired.
"Did you check for a heart beat?"
The coroner said, "not at all,"
"Then how could you pronounce him dead?
How could you make that call?"
That last question was the last straw,
The coroner got "urinated,"
He put that lawyer in his place,
and with a straight face he related;
"The man's brain is on my desk,
in a bottled stored with care,
And for all I know the man in question,
is out practicing law somewhere!"
