A Bit of Humor

How's this for a ripping yarn?

A successful businessman parked his brand-new Porsche in front of his office so his colleagues could see it. As he stepped out of the new car, a truck passed too close and ripped off the door on the driver's side. A bystander dialed 911 and within a few minutes a policeman arrived. Before the officer could ask any questions, the business man began screaming hysterically that his new Porsche was now completely totaled. It was only after a half hour of ranting that the officer was able to talk to the man. I can't believe how materialistic you are, the police officer said. You are so focused on your possessions that you don't notice anything else. The businessman was clearly offended: How can you say such a thing? The policeman replied: Don't you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off by that truck. My God!" screamed the man. My Rolex!

You've made my day; now what is the bad news? Answers the lawyer: They are pictures of you in bed with your secretary.
