A very wealthy lawyer vacationed for several weeks each year at his summer home in Maine. Each summer he would invite friends to come and visit him. One summer he invited a lawyer from Czechoslovakia to visit. The friend eagerly agreed, and they had a wonderful time enjoying the natural setting. One morning as they were walking in the woods, they were approached by two huge bears, a male and a female. The lawyer saw them in time to run for cover, but his Czech friend was not as lucky. The male bear reached him and swallowed him whole. Seeing this, the lawyer got in his car, sped to town to get the local sheriff. The sheriff grabbed his rifle and they raced back to the berry patch. Luckily the bears were still there. “He’s in that one!” cried the lawyer pointing to the male bear. “Quick, shoot it!” The sheriff leveled his gun took careful aim and shot the female bear. The bear collapsed to the ground. The startled male fled into the woods! “Why did you do that?” demanded the lawyer, “I said he was in the other bear!” “Exactly,” replied the sheriff. “Would you believe a lawyer who told you that the Czech was in the male?” (Yep, it gives pathetic new meaning but true?)
