Lawyer Jokes (An Occasional Series).
Author and attorney Scott Turow told this joke on NPR today. Because it mixes law and theology I can't resist repeating it here (with slight paraphrasing).
An engineer, a physician and an attorney were sitting on a park bench.
The engineer asserted God was an engineer because he created the physical universe with such precision and complexity.
The physician disagreed, arguing that God was a doctor because of how he created human bodies with such intricate, symbiotic functionality.
The lawyer asserted, "You're both wrong. God was a lawyer. The first thing he created was chaos and darkness."
