In the traffic court
of a large Midwestern city, a young lady was brought before the judge to
answer for a ticket given her for driving through a red light. She explained
to his honor that she was a schoolteacher and requested an immediate
disposal of her case so she could get to the school on time.
A wild gleam came into the judge's eyes. "You're a schoolteacher,
eh?" he said. "Madam, I shall realize my lifelong ambition. I've
waited years to have a schoolteacher in this court. Now sit down at that
table and write 'I will not drive through red lights' 500 times!"

He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"
She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since
you were a young boy. And frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You
lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind
their backs. You think you're a rising big shot when you haven't the brains to
realize you will never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes,
I know you."
The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room
and asked, "Mrs. Williams, do you know the defense attorney?"
She replied, "Why, yes I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a
youngster, too. I used to baby-sit him for his parents. And he, too, has been a
real disappointment to me. He's lazy, bigoted, and has a drinking problem. The
man can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one
of the shoddiest in the entire state. Yes, I know him."
At this point, the judge rapped the courtroom to silence and called both
counselors to the bench.
In a very quiet voice, he said with menace, "If either of you asks her if

One day, they were lunching at a Hollywood restaurant, and Benny was
wrestling with the problem of whether or not to butter his bread.

You should be able to decide, without your wife's help, whether or not to
butter your own bread."
