Here’s an oldie but goodie:
Two guys were in a hot air balloon when they drifted way off course. They dropped the balloon to about 75 feet and saw a man in overalls driving a tractor in a field. They got his attention and yelled: “Where are we?” The man stopped the tractor, looked around, and responded: “Your’re about 75 feet straight overhead.” They thanked him and went on.
One man in the balloon turned to the other and observed, “Isn’t that just our luck? Here we are lost, and the first guy we ask for help turns out to be an attorney at law!”
His friend responded “A lawyer? Why do you think that? Looked like a farmer to me.”
“I know he looked like a farmer, but look at what just happened. We asked him a question. He gave us an answer. I’m sure that his answer was completely accurate. And we are just as lost now as we were before we asked him.”
The other guy was skeptical. But when the travelers eventually found their way home, they also found a bill for $50, citing “Legal services rendered: assisted clients in ascertaining current status.”
