Laughter in court

We believe in the importance of comedy, and agree with writer, actor, philosopher Stephen Fry who once said, “It is easy to forget that the most important aspect of comedy, after all, its great saving grace, is its ambiguity. You can simultaneously laugh at a situation, and take it seriously.” 

Laughter in court is pretty rare; but laughter ABOUT court is more frequent. Enjoy!

From actual transcripts:
Q: What was the first thing your husband said to you when he woke that morning?
A: He said, “Where am I, Cathy?”
Q: And why did that upset you?
A: My name is Susan.
*
Q: Doctor, how many autopsies have you performed on dead people?
A: All my autopsies are performed on dead people.
*
Q: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
A: Yes.
Q: And what were you doing at that time?
*

A joke from the ‘bar’…

    Honestly, I have tears of sorrow running down my cheeks rereading this article and comments. Of course my own and Poppa’s and knowing what is going on.
    We can cry and strengthen, tears are more powerful than bullets, but yet the bully boys have not yet learnt.

    I laughed, thank you.
    But first my mind went back to laughing as my father was in coma, in hospital on life support.
    My father who I never knew. A dysfunctional family in the 60’s, by the love from my grandparents I survived, but was still damaged.
    My father died as a result of a blow to the back of the head; a blood clot; excruciating pain before diagnosis. And life support turned off.
    As a 16 year old all ready suffering anxiety but not aware this is a condition; I laughed looking at my old man unconscious and head bandaged in hospital. But this was a nervous reaction. .And years later I went to Tasmania.

    Seeing the funny side of these, but also the sad reality that these silly questions are just tip of the proverbial iceberg. Just need to be the one who laughs last in the end, can take a while but I’ve been there (laughing last) & it’s a great way to finish! Poetic justice!

    I am not laughing. My son was falsely accused, found guilty by Jury fed lies and innuendo in the absence of any kind of factual proof whatsoever. Laugh at the cretins who wrecked his life when I get to wring the fucking necks of the CORRUPT CPS Caseworkers Police,Lawyers and Judges who ruined the life of my son and rewed my family !! WAR IS NOT AMUSING! But WINNING one brings out the laughter,dancing and the CHAMPAGNE!

      Sorry to hear; your son is evidently one of the victims of The System, the worst of which we battle every day by shining a light on the miscarriages of justice that we find. You have our best wishes.

      Thanks Poppa Maddo for contributing, as hard as it is.
      I am sorry.
      I am thankful also for Andrew and his team.
      I am attempting to keep my fight going; as inconsequential as it is; but injustice and corruption is injustice and corruption.
      Poppa, I say , Fxxx the dogs.
