Why U Lie Now?

A man is in the dock, the Judges says, 'on the

3rd August you are accused of killing you wife

by beating her to death with a hammer, how do you

plead?'

'Guilty', said the man in the dock.

At this point a man at the back of the court

stood up and shouted 'You dirty rat!'.

The Judge asked the man to site down and to

refrain from making any noise.

The Judge continued 'and that also on the 17th

September you are accused of killing your son

by beating him to death with a hammer, how do

you plead?'

'Guilty', said the man in the dock.

Again the same man at the back stood up and

shouted 'You dirty rotten stinking rat'.

At this point the Judge called the man to the

Bench and said 'I have already asked you to be

quiet, if you continue with these outbursts, I

will have to charge you with contempt of court.

I can understand your feelings, but please tell

me what relationship have you to the man in the

dock'.

He replied 'He is my next door neighbour'.

The Judge replied 'I can understand your feelings

then, but you must refrain from any comments'.

The man replied 'No, your Honour, you don't

understand. Twice I have asked if I could borrow

a hammer, and on both occasions he said he didn't

have one.'
