Jury Duty

Jury Duty

A man was chosen for jury service, but he very much wanted to avoid it. He tried every excuse he could think of, but none of them worked. On the day of the trial, he decided to give it one more shot.

As the trial was about to begin, he asked if he could approach the bench.

"Your Honor," he said "I must be excused from this trial because I am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at the man in the blue suit with those beady eyes and that dishonest face and I thought 'He is a crook, he's guilty, guilty.' So your Honor, I could not possibly stay on this jury."

The judge replied, "Get back in the jury box. You are just the kind of juror we are looking for - a good judge of character. That man is the defendant's lawyer."
