Year’s best comeback!




If you ever testify in a Court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defence attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility ….. 



Q: 'Officer — did you see my client fleeing the scene ?' 

A: 'No Sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.' 

Q: 'Officer — Who provided this description?' 

A: 'The Officer who responded to the scene.' 

Q: 'A Fellow Officer provided description of this so- called offender. Do you trust your Fellow Officers ?'

A: 'Yes, Sir. With my life.' 

Q: 'With your life? Let me then ask you this Officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties ?' 

A: 'Yes Sir, we do !' 

Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room ?' 

A: 'Yes, Sir, … I do.' 

Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker ?' 

A: 'Yes, Sir.' 

Q: 'Now, … why is it, Officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers ?' 

A: 'You see, Sir — we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'

The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year's 'Best Comeback' line — and we think he'll win.
