The Lawyer Joke

Lawyers are very unpopular in the USA and there are many jokes about them

A teacher, a politician and a lawyer all died and went to heaven. St. Peter was in a bad mood because there were too many people in heaven and he wanted to make it more difficult to enter. When they got to the gate, St. Peter told them that they had to pass a test before they could to get into Heaven: they all had to answer one question.

St Peter turned to the teacher and said, "What was the name of the ship that hit the iceberg and sank with all its passengers?"

The teacher thought for a moment and then replied:" I think it was the Titanic". St. Peter let him through the gate.

He didn't like politicians so he decided to ask a more difficult question, St. Peter turned to the politician, and asked "How many people died on the ship?"

The politician was very lucky because he had read a book about the Titanic. He said "1228". This is correct so St. Peter let him through the gate.

St. Peter turned to the Lawyer and asked "What were their names?"
