Lawyers vs Engineers
« on: March 08, 2014, 04:20:20 am »
I'm sure many have read or heard this before, but it is funny...

The engineer found himself at the pearly gates. St. Peter looked him up in the book, and found that he was destined for the other place. The engineer protested that this must be a mistake, and that he had lived a righteous life, going to church every week, being faithful to his wife etc. to no avail. About 6 weeks later God reviews the lists and realizes that the engineer has been sent to the wrong place. So he rings up Lucifer and demands that the engineer be sent up. Lucifer says "NO WAY. This guy was the best thing to ever happen here. He's got the AC working, we have running water and cable now too, and next week he thinks we will get internet access and an ice cream machine." God is pissed and yelling says "I'll sue". Lucifer says "ya okay, but where are you going to get a lawyer?"

And with the AC working so well, hell got so cold that the lawyers had their hands in their own pockets for a change!

okay so we couldn't leave it alone...

In the United States, the nominal suffix "Esquire" or "Esq." generally designates individuals licensed to practice law.

In the United Kingdom, it was a title of respect accorded to men of higher social rank, but later came to be used as a general courtesy title for any man in a formal context, usually appended to the name as in "John Smith, Esq.", with no precise significance.  Esquire is cognate with the word squire, which originally meant an apprentice or assistant to a knight. The title "Esquire" has been used continuously since it was created in the late 14th century, and many uses continue today.  (Thank you Wiki).....

So I have to ask Tom, are you an attorney or an apprentice to a knight?  Just to clarify things for our UK friends?? :745: :745: :745: 

Sorry had to do this as my evening has become somewhat dull.

 :062: Touche, two nations divided by a common language indeed, interesting too.

So if we come across a US Lawyer wearing chainmail, how should we address him  :084: Hello Rusty  :038:
