A man who was chosen for jury duty in a Fort Worth, Texas court case wanted very much to be dismissed from serving. He tried just about
every excuse he could come up with, but nothing worked. On the day of the trial, he decided to give it one more try. Just as the trial was about to begin, he asked if he could approach the bench.
“Your Honor,” he said, “I feel I must be excused from this trial since I am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at the man in the blue suit with those sneaky, beady eyes and that dishonest face and I said, ‘He’s a crook! Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!’ Therefore, your Honor, I could not possibly remain on this jury.”
Glaring at him, the Judge replied, “Get yourself back in the jury box. That man is his lawyer!”
