No Intelligent Conversation

Brent Barlow in Salt Lake City Desert News

A woman went to a lawyer and said she wanted a divorce. The lawyer got out his note pad, and proceeded to ask her some questions.

"Do you have any grounds?" he inquired.

"Oh, yes," she replied. "About three-quarters of an acre."

The lawyer paused for a moment, then queried, "Do you have a grudge?"

"No," the woman answered quickly. "But we do have a lovely carport."

Again the lawyer paused and then asked, "Does he beat you up?"

"No. I get up before he does every morning," the woman reported.

Finally the lawyer blurted, "Lady, why do you want to divorce your husband?"

"It's because," she explained, "that man can't carry on an intelligent conversation."
