    Regulations governing testing of chemicals are to be altered. From January 1st testing of all chemicals, cosmetics and other such products may only be carried out on lawyers.

    The Government spokesman was asked why this policy had been adopted. He replied that no-one complained about testing on lawyers, there was a plentiful supply of them and the researchers didn't get emotionally attached to them.

    A lawyer was driving his big BMW down the highway, singing to himself, "I love my BMW, I love my BMW."

    Focusing on his car, not his driving, he smashed into a tree. He miraculously survived, but his car was totaled.

    "My BMW! My BMW!" he sobbed.

    A good Samaritan drove by and cried out, "Sir, sir, you're bleeding! And my god, your left arm is gone!"

    The lawyer, horrified, screamed "My Rolex! My Rolex!"
