Today’s Quote: A Lawyer Joke
A legal staffer is still gonna have to change it.

Normally, I don’t share these, or tell them at work (’cause oddly the lawyers get a li’l huffy), but since this one allegedly came from a legal assistant who had been in the legal industry longer than the lawyer who shared the joke has been alive (although she couldn’t escape without a crack about her age), I’m obligated:

How many lawyers does it take to change a light bulb?

Fifty-four. Eight to argue, one to get a continuance, one to object, one to demur, two to research precedents, one to dictate a letter, one to stipulate, five to turn in their time cards, one to depose, one to write interrogatories, two to settle, one to order a secretary to change the bulb, and twenty-eight to bill for professional services.
