funny but true.....

Funny enough, these events actually happened!

I was searching the net and landed up on this site. If this doesn't make you laugh, i don't know what else would. Since its weekend, Salitype's post what you want day, thought i'd give this a try......

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters who had the torment of staying calm as these exchanges were actually taking place.

  1. hahahahaha! Hey aren't these some of the Erap Estrada jokes? Regardless, I think he would be a far far better president than the current GMA!

    I think the funniest Q&A I have ever heard is the recent Ms. Philippines one...the "good ehvning" one! hahaha! Have you seen that one? They put it all over youtube! :)

    Thank you for visiting my writings, and thank you for the comment that you left, I appreciate it much. :)

  2. Oh wow... what better way to start a day than a good laugh! Hahaha! My favorite is the first one "I just LIE there" seconded by "oral!" My students do this a lot -whenever I say: "say something, guys" with no sarcasm what-so-ever, they look at me (wide-eyed) and they go "huh? something?" Hahaha! Nice one!
