HumouR Us... 
It has been reported, that those working in Human Resources are amongst the unhappiest workers in the United Kingdom... There are occasions when the nature of our work perhaps puts us in a more sombre mood than most, but that's not always the case and there can be a lighter side to our work too - even some humour on occasions and we will be using this space to share some of the funnier aspects of our work. Some of the stories will be true; others will be entirely fiction - but in all cases, names will be with-held to protect the guilty!!!! 

Legal Humour from the US ~ Part Two... 
This week we feature some more corkers from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, written by Charles M Sevilla, which recounts some actual comments taken from Attorneys and Witnesses in American Court proceedings...  
Image from 
Attorney: Were you present when your picture was taken? 
Witness: Are you kidding me
Attorney: How was your first marriage terminated? 
Witness: By death. 
Attorney: And by whose death was it terminated? 
Witness: Take a guess. 
Attorney: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to? 
Witness: Oral. 
Attorney: Can you describe the individual? 
Witness: He was about medium height and had a beard. 
Attorney: Was this a male or a female? 
Witness: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male. 
Attorney: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney? 
Witness: No, this is how I dress when I go to work. 
Attorney: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse? 
Witness: No. 
Attorney: Did you check for blood pressure? 
Witness: No. 
Attorney: Did you check for breathing? 
Witness: No. 
Attorney: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy? 
Witness: No. 
Attorney: How can you be so sure, Doctor? 
Witness: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar. 
Attorney: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless? 
Witness: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.
