Trying to win their case some lawyers have been known to ask some incredibly unbelievable questions. The Massachusetts Bar Association Lawyer’s Journal gave the following example:

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

Answer: No.

Question: Did you check for blood pressure?

Answer: No.

Question: Did you check for breathing?

Answer: No

Question: Then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?

Answer: No

Question: How can you be sure doctor?

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

Question: But couldn’t the patient been alive nevertheless?

Answer: It is possible that the patient could still have been alive and practicing law somewhere.


A body without the brain is dead; likewise faith without is works is dead. Dead faith does nothing.
