So this man is walking by a pawnshop.
« on: September 09, 2008, 11:39:26 AM »
Looking in the window with a cursory glance he notices a statue of a golden rat. It's a very nice statue it looks like real gold and is high in detail. The man on a whim enters the pawnshop and inquires about buying the rat statue.

"Oh that? It's twenty-five dollars." the shopkeeper says, "But the story behind it is one hundred dollars."
"I'll just take the statue." the man says, after all it was a pretty good deal.
Well the man takes his purchase in it's brown paper bag and leaves the store.

Walking down the street he he looks behind him and sees a rat following him. Not thinking anything of it he continues on his way.
After a while two more rats are following him. After a while more, five rats.

Well the man starts to feel nervous and he hurries his pace. All the while more and more rats are chasing him.
Well when it reaches about three hundred rats the man panics and runs thousands and thousands of rats are now following him.
Running to the city's bay he heaves the statue into the water and all the rats follow it and drown. Every single one.

Running back to the pawn shop the man bursts through the door.
"Back for the story eh?" the owner says knowingly. "That's one..."

The man cuts him off and pants, "No. Quick! Do you have a golden lawyer?"

Rats came out of nowhere to follow the golden rat statue and drowned themselves. Ergo, ostensibly if one had a golden lawyer statue, lawyers would follow it and drown too...

I pm'd him so the punchline wouldn't be ruined.  >:(

The punchline won't be ruined unless people go reading the rest of the thread before the initial post. :)

But they might, and then the punchline will be forever ruined for that individual.  :'(

Typically people read the first post ...first...so if they read Bliss' and that gave them the punchline then tehy didn't get it in the first place.

Well, I'd like to point out one thing here: Many lawyers, like many rats, can swim. *nod*
