The trial went on for 4 weeks with testimony by both sides. Finally, the jury retired to determine the verdict.
After 2 days the jury had reached a decision to acquit the prisoner.
Judge: "What possible reason could you have for acquitting the prisoner?"
Foreman: "Insanity, sir."
Judge: "What, all twelve of you?"
"Yes," said the lawyer to his client. "You have got the best case I have ever heard."
"Thanks," said the client, grabbing up his coat and heading out the door.
"Where are you going?" ask the astonished lawyer.
"I'm going to settle this case out of court," said the leaving client.
"But I told you it is the best case I have ever heard?"
"Maybe," began the client, "but not for me, I told you the other fellow's case."

"Yes sir," replied the clerk.
"Well, this morning I tried for half and hour, and I'll be darned if it would make my teeth stick in!"
