Perfect Divorce Divorce settlement for a lawyer
who almost had it all...
A married couple is driving along a highway doing a steady forty miles
per hour. The wife is behind the wheel. Her husband, a divorce lawyer,
suddenly looks across at her and speaks in a clear voice, "Darling," he
says. "I know we've been married for twenty years, but I want a
The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but slowly
increases her speed to 45 mph.
"I don't want you to try and talk me out of it", he says, "because I've
been having an affair with your best friend, and she's a far better
lover than you are."
Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly
and slowly increases the speed to 55.
The husband confidently says, "I want the house." The wife knows he has
the skill to get the upper hand in a divorce proceeding. Up to 60.
"I want the car, too," he continues. 65 mph.
"And," he says, "I want the bank accounts, all the credit cards and the
The car veers towards a massive concrete bridge. This makes the husband
nervous, so he asks her: "Is there anything you want?"
The wife at last replies - in a quiet and controlled voice. "No, I've
got everything I need." she says.
"Oh, really?" he says with derision. "So what have you got?"
Just before they slam into the wall at 65 mph, the wife turns to him and

A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with
one of her students. The teacher asked,'Harry, what's your problem?' Harry
answered, 'I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and
I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!'!
Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office. While Harry
waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the
situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he
failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and
behave. She agreed.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to
take the test. Principal:' What is 3 x 3?' Harry: '9. ' Principal: 'What is 6 x
6?' Harry:'36.' And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd
grader should know. The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, 'I think
Harry can go to the 3rd grade.' Ms. Brooks says to the principal, 'Let me ask
him some questions.'
The principal and Harry both agreed. Ms. Brooks asks, 'What does a cow have four
of that I have only two of?' Harry, after a moment: 'Legs' Ms Brooks: 'What is
in your pants that you have but I do not have?' The principal wondered why would
she ask such a question! Harry replied: 'Pockets.' Ms. Brooks: 'What does a dog
do that a man steps into?' Harry: 'Pants. 'Ms. Brooks: What starts with a C,
ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?'
The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open. Ms. Brooks: 'What goes in
hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?' The principal's eyes opened
really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied, 'Bubble gum.
'Ms. Brooks: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a
dog does on three legs?' Harry: 'Shake hands.' The principal was trembling.
Ms. Brooks :'What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' and generates a lot of
excitement?' Harry: 'Firetruck.' The principal breathed a sigh of relief and
told the teacher,' Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions
