    The judge says to a double-murder defendant, "You're charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer."
    A voice at the back of the courtroom yells out, "Why, you bastard!"

    The judge says, "You're also charged with beating your mother-in-law to death with a hammer."

    The voice in the back of the courtroom yells out, "Why, you bastard!"

    The judge stops and says to the guy in the back of the courtroom, "Sir, I can understand your anger and frustration at this crime. But no more outbursts from you, or I'll charge you with contempt. Is that understood?"

    The guy in the back of the court stands up and says, "I'm sorry, your Honor, but for 15 years I've lived next door to that bastard, and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he didn't have one."
