Lawyer vs doctor

A defense attorney, cross-examining a surgeon,

ATTORNEY : "Before you signed the death certificate, had you taken a pulse?"


ATTORNEY: "Did you listen to the heart?"


ATTORNEY: "Did you check for breathing?"


ATTORNEY: "So, when you signed the death certificate you weren't sure the man was dead, were you?"

SURGEON : "Well, let me put it this way. The man's brain was sitting in a jar on my desk. But I guess it's possible he could be out there practicing law somewhere."
