    A job for life

    If you want a job for life, then it seems being a Microsoft lawyer is going to come pretty close!

    Makes you wonder if they do anything but sue and be sued.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Leads on to the old joke - after nuclear war there will only be two forms of life left: cockroaches & lawyers!

    What is the difference between a dead snake on the road and a dead lawyer on the road?

    ....



    There are skid marks in front of the snake.

    If you are stranded on a desert island with Adolph Hitler, Atilla the Hun, and a lawyer, and you have a gun with only two bullets, what do you do?










    Shoot the lawyer twice.

    Bugger that I'd shoot the lawyer then myself.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Actually it makes perfect sense to my obviously dry sense of humour

    How do you kill a lawyer?

    You slam the toilet lid on his head while he is getting a drink.
