Speaking of courts. We are happy to reproduce a little gem from a publication called Disorder in the Court, which will be a timely reminder to any students aspiring to a career in the law.

"Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?"

asked the brief.

"No" "Did you check for breathing?"


"So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?"


"How can you be so sure?"

"Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar."

"But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?"

"Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practising law somewhere."
