As th­ese court tran­scripts from con­sti­tu­tion­ demon­strate, the art of cross-ex­am­i­na­tion hasn’t been mas­tered by every­body.

Lawyer: “The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?”

Wit­ness: “He’s 20, much like your IQ.”

Lawyer: “Can you de­scribe the in­di­vid­ual?”

Wit­ness: “He was about medium height and had a beard.”

Lawyer: “Was this a male or a fe­male?”

Wit­ness: “Un­less the cir­cus was in town, I’m go­ing with male.”

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

Wit­ness: “Oral…”

Lawyer: “Doc­tor, how many of your au­top­sies have you per­formed on dead peo­ple?”

Wit­ness: “All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.”
