Today's Joke

Working in the legal field can sometimes be very DRY. Occasionally though, you have an attorney that in a moment of downtime tells a joke. I found this one worthy of sharing.

An old man is lying on his deathbed as the family visits one by one. His grandson comes in, and the old man motions him closer and says "Hand me that box, son, I have a present for you that you'll treasure for a lifetime."

The young man in anticipation hands the box to his grandfather. His grandfather pulls out his sixty year old pistol and hands it to his grandson. Noting the look of disappointment on the young man's face he asks, "What wrong, don't you like it?"

The young man smiles and nods his head. "Yeah, Grandpa, but I was kind of hoping for your Rolex."

The old man gathers enough energy to chortle. "My Rolex? Why you ain't thinking right, son. Years from now when you get married and you come home from work and find that pretty young thing you married in bed with another man, what do you want to do? Grab your gun and kill him, or look at your Rolex and say, 'your times up"?"

Needless to say, the young man changed his mind about the present.
