As we stood in formation at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, our Flight Instructor said, "All right! All you dummies fall out."
As the rest of the squad wandered away, I remained at attention.
The Instructor walked over until he was eye-to-eye with me, and then just raised a single eyebrow.
I smiled and said, "Sure was a lot of 'em, huh sir?"
Two lawyers, Bob and Bill, were having a heated exchange during a trial. The judge asked both lawyers to approach the bench. "Your Honor," said Bob, "I objected because my distinguished colleague Bill was badgering the witness. It is obvious he has never heard of the Bill of Rights."
"Rubbish!" snapped Bill. "I happen to know them by heart."
Bob rolled his eyes in disbelief. "Do you now? Well, Bill, I have a hundred dollars that says
you can't even tell me the first few words."
Bill smirked and accepted the challenge and began, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..."
"Damn," Bob interrupted, fishing the money from his pocket, "I didn't think you'd know it."
