A judge working a double-murder case tells the defendant, “You’re charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer.”
“You bastard!” yells a voice from the back of the courtroom.
“You’re also charged with killing your mother-in-law with a hammer,” says the judge.
“Bastard!” the same person yells.
The judge addresses the man sitting in the back of the courtroom.“Sir, one more outburst and I’ll charge you with contempt.”
“I’m sorry, Your Honour,” says the man. “But I’ve been this bastard’s neighbour for 10 years, and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he didn’t have one.”
