Having many legal problems, including a divorce, a man had become thoroughly disgusted with lawyers in general.
One evening in a bar, the conversation got around to his pet peeve and he started "venting."
"All lawyers are jerks," he loudly proclaimed.
Another man nearby heard this, looked disturbed, and sauntered over to him.
"Look, I heard what you said, and I am highly offended by it."
"Why is that-are you a lawyer?" he asked.
"No, I'm not; I'm a jerk!"
