A Smart Witness
A witness to an automobile accident was testifying.
The lawyer asked him,"Did you actually see the accident?"
The lawyer :"How far away were you when the accident happened?"
The witness:"Thirty-one feet,six and one quarter inches."
The lawyer(thinking he'd trap the witness):"Well ,sir,will you please tell the jury how you knew it was exactly that distance?"
The witness:"Because when the accident happened I took out a tape and measured it.I knew some annoying lawyer would ask me that silly question."
