    A man who was chosen for jury duty wanted very much to be dismissed from serving. He tried just about every excuse he could come up with, but nothing worked.

    On the day of the trial, he decided to give it one more try. Just as the trial was about to begin, he asked if he could approach the bench.

    "Your Honor," he said, "I feel I must be excused from this trial since I am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at the man in the blue suit with those sneaky, beady eyes and that dishonest face and I said, 'He's a crook! Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!' Therefore, your Honor, I could not possibly remain on this jury."

    Glaring at him, the Judge replied, "Get yourself back in the jury box. That man is his lawyer!"

    Sad thing is I doubt 4 months go by before someone asks me how to get OUT of jury duty. If they have a half way reasonable reason I tell them. Sad thing is anyone who has half a brain can (and likely will want to because of job/family/etc) Can get out of jury duty. Of course this means only idiot/non working/Opra watching couch potatos will be on a jury. :(
    Heck even when I TRY to get on they disqualify me. (I would have to lie to get on)
