A farmer went to see a big-city lawyer and asked what his least expensive fee was.

“One hundred dollars for three questions,” the lawyer answered.

“Isn’t that an awful lot of money for three questions?” asked the farmer.

“Yes,” said the lawyer. “What is your final question?”

*****

DEFENDANT: Judge, I want you to appoint me another lawyer.

THE COURT: And why is that?

DEFENDANT: Because the PD isn’t interested in my case.

THE COURT: (to public defender) Do you have any comments on defendant’s motion?”

PUBLIC DEFENDER: I’m sorry, Your Honor, I wasn’t listening.

Two farmers each claimed to own a certain cow. While one pulled on its head and the other pulled on its tail, the cow was milked by a lawyer. (Jewish parable)
