01/31/2006: Today's Dr. Science Question of the Day:
Dear Dr. Science,
Q. Why are lawyers paid so much?
--from Mary Pat Hough of Pittsburgh, PA
A. As part of the pact they made with Satan when they were ordained, barristers made sure they were well compensated for the loss of their souls. The transformation to parasite caused each esquire to develop a low self-image. This manifests itself in strange compulsions, such as ambulance chasing, habitual arrogance, and the desire to own an expensive briefcase. Unfortunately, these afflictions seem to resist conventional psychiatry, and lawyers are doomed to the most horrible fate of all, to just be themselves. Of course, I'm not just saying this because of that lawsuit a few years back. Or any of the divorce settlements. I'm not that small.
