Lawyer: “Doctor, before you performed autopsy, did you check for pulse?”

Witness: “No”

Lawyer: “did you check for blood pressure?”

Witness: “No”

Lawyer: “did you check for breathing?”

Witness: “No”

Lawyer: “ so, then it is possible for the patient to be alive when you began the autopsy?”

Doctor: “no”

Lawyer: “how can you be so sure doctor ?”

Doctor: “because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar”

Lawyer: “but the patient could have been alive nevertheless?”

Witness: “yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere”
