Ask A Silly Question. The following exchanges all occurred in American courts of law

“Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn’t know about it until the morning”

Q: “Doctor how many autopsies have you performed on dead people?”
A: “All my autopsies are performed on dead people.”

Q: “The date of conception of the baby was August?”
A: “Yes.”
Q: “What were you doing at the time?”

Q: “All your responses must be oral, OK? What school did you go to?”
A: “Oral”

“How far apart were the vehicles at the time of the collision”

“You were there until the time you left, is this true?”

A: “No”

A: “No”
Q: “Did you check for breathing?”
A: “No”
Q: “So then is it possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?”
A: “No”
Q: “How can you be so sure, Doctor?”
A: “Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar”

A: “It is possible that he could have been alive and practising law somewhere”

A: “I have been since early childhood”
