Nothing like a good lawyer joke.

Two business partners asked their lawyer to hold $20,000, making him promise to get both of their signatures before disbursing any of it.

As soon as one partner left town, the other pressed the lawyer for $15,000, citing an emergency. The lawyer reluctantly gave it to him, and he disappeared.

On his return, the other partner was irate, so the lawyer explained that he had donated the $15,000 out of his own pocket.

"Then give me the $20,000 you're holding," said the partner.

"All right," said the lawyer. "Give me the two signatures."

This is just dumb. How is the lawyer supposed to collect a fee?
