Both are equally attractive and well spoken. It's up to the senior partner to choose one, so he takes each aside and asks, "Why did you become a lawyer?" In seconds, he chooses Paul. Baffled, Robert takes Paul aside. "I don't understand why I was rejected. When Mr. Armstrong asked me why I became a lawyer, I said that I had the greatest respect for the law, that I'd lay down my life for the Constitution and that all I wanted was to do right by my clients. What in the world did you tell him?" "I said I became a lawyer because of my hands," Robert replies. "Your hands? What do you mean?"

A Czechoslovakian scientist and a Polish scientist had both spent their professional lives studying the grizzly bear. Each year they petitioned their respective governments to allow them to go to Yellowstone National Park, in America to study the bears. Finally, one year, both their requests were granted, and they immediately flew to New York and onward west to Yellowstone. They reported to the ranger station at Yellowstone, and were told that it was grizzly mating season, and it was too dangerous to go out and study the animals. The scientists pleaded that this was their only chance, and finally the ranger relented. The Czech and the Pole were given portable phones and were told to report in every day. For several days they called in, but then nothing was heard from either one of them. The rangers mounted a search party and found the camp from where they last reported in, completely ravaged with no sign of the missing men. The rangers then followed the trail of the male and female bear. The found the female and decided they must kill the animal to find out if she had eaten the scientists, because they feared an international incident. So they killed the female animal and opened the stomach to find the remains of the Polish scientist. One ranger turned to the other and said "of course, you know what this means? The other ranger responded" of course.....

Joe said, "Frank, that isn't the right way of getting things changed around here. . . . You shouldn't put all of your begs in one ask-it." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They show him kissing his new-and beautiful-wife. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
