Funny Courtroom Mistakes Based on Actual Court Room Transcripts of Trials.

Now, Mrs. Johnson, how was your first marriage terminated?

By death.

And by whose death was it terminated?
Doctor, did you say he was shot in the woods?

No, I said he was shot in the lumbar region.
Now, doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, in most cases he just passes quietly away and doesn't know anything about it until the next morning?
Was it you or your brother that was killed in the war?
The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
I show you exhibit 3 and ask you if you recognize that picture.

That's me.

Were you present when that picture was taken?
So you were gone until you returned?
She had three children, right?
How many were boys?
Were there girls?
You don't know what it was, and you didn't know what it looked like, but can you describe it?
You say that the stairs went down to the basement?
And these stairs, did they go up also?
Were you alone or by yourself?
Do you have any children or anything of that kind?
Have you lived in this town all your life?
Not yet.
Do you recall approximately the time that you examined the body of Mr. Edington at the rose Chapel?

It was in the evening. The autopsy started about 8:30 p.m.

And Mr. Eddington was dead at the time, is that correct?

No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy!
How long have you been a French Canadian?
Are you married?

No, I'm divorced.

And what did your husband do before you divorced him?

A lot of things I didn't know about.
Were you present in court this morning when you were sworn in?

These are not exactly newspaper ads , but on a street here in south Austin, 2 creative signs make me chuckle every time I drive by.

One is from a small local garage that works on foreign cars.

Here are some church announcements:

Tuesday at 4 pm there will be an ice cream social. All ladies giving milk, come early.

This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Johnson to come forward and lay an egg on the altar.

Thursday at 5 pm, there will be a meeting of the Little Mothers. All those wishing to become little mothers, please meet the pastor in his study.

The ladies of the church have cast-off clothing of every kind and they may be seen in the basement on Friday afternoons.

A bean supper will be held Saturday evening in the church basement. Music will follow.

Real C&W Song Titles:

If you see me getting smaller, it's cause I'm leavin' you

If heartaches were wine (I'd be drunk all the time)

If you can't feel it (it ain't there)

Get your tongue outta my mouth 'cause I'm kissing you goodbye

I don't know whether to kill myself or go bowling

If fingerprints wooed up on skin, wonder whose I'd find on you

I've been flushed from the bathroom of your heart

He's been drunk since his wife's gone punk

I'll marry you tomorrow but let's honeymoon tonight

You stuck my heart in an old tin can and shot it off a log

It ain't love, but it ain't bad

Mama get the hammer (there's a fly on papa's head)

You're the reason our kids are so ugly
