    At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting
    attorney attacked a witness. "Isn't it true," he bellowed, "that
    you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?"

    The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn't hear the
    question.

    "Isn't it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to
    compromise this case?" the lawyer repeated. The witness still did
    not respond.

    Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the
    question."

    "Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to
    you."
