Description: Lawyers Interogation of a Coroner
 A defending attorney was cross examining a coroner.
   The attorney asked, "Before you signed the death certificate had you
   taken the man's pulse?"
   The coroner said, "No."
   The attorney then asked, "Did you listen for a heart beat?"
   "No."
   "Did you check for breathing?"
   "No."
   "So when you signed the death certificate you had not taken any steps
   to make sure the man was dead, had you?"
   The coroner, now tired of the brow beating said, "Well, let me put it
   this way.  The man's brain was sitting in a jar on my desk, but for
   all I know he could be out there practicing law somewhere."
