The Jamaican Lawyer – Humor

 I’m not quite sure why this would be specifically a “Jamaican Lawyer”, but in the joke’s defence, I can certainly see every Jamaican I’ve ever known using this kind of logic.

Mon.

So stir up some Callaloo and serve it with some Jerked Chicken, here’s a little joke for you!

The Jamaican Lawyer

A Jamaican-born lawyer defending a man in New York accused of burglary tried this creative defense:

“My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offence committed by his limb.”

“Well put,” the judge replied. “Using your logic, I sentence the defendant’s arm to 5 year’s imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses.”

The defendant smiled.

With his lawyer’s assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out.

…Don’t mess with a Jamaican!
