Liar Liar!

As a po­ten­tial ju­ror in an as­sault-and-bat­tery case, I was sit­ting in a court­room, an­swer­ing ques­tions from both sides. The as­sis­tant district at­tor­ney asked such ques­tions as: Had I ever been mugged? Did I know the vic­tim or the de­fen­dant? The de­fense at­tor­ney took a dif­fer­ent ap­proach, how­ever. “I see you are a teacher,” he said. “What do you teach?” “English and theater,” I re­sponded. “Then I guess I bet­ter watch my gram­mar,” the de­fense at­tor­ney quipped. “No,” I shot back. “You bet­ter watch your act­ing.” When the laugh­ter in the court­room died down, I was ex­cused from the case.
