Quick, witty response to lawyer jokes to be enjoyed by all.
ByRobert Bloom LCSWon September 15, 2015
Kudos to Kushner for writing a funny, and often poignant, response to tiresome lawyer jokes. Many times lawyer jokes are truly veiled criticisms when directed at lawyers. It can be quite aggressive. Don’t confuse my appreciation for good jokes,including lawyer jokes, with my disdain for those who use humor destructively. The inebriated party goer with the litany of lawyer jokes is a bore. Confessionally, I’m the father of a 3rd year law student. So I’ naturally sensitive about the issue.
And, this book is funny. The “retorts” are funny. Even if attorneys won’t use one of Kushner’s response in public, they will enjoy reading them and imagine using them as a showstopper to the lawyer joke barrage. Those not in the legal field will certainly enjoy Kushner’s rejoinders. This is a wonderful little reference to refer to frequently for a smile or for a provocative thought.
Kushner gets it. He understands the role of humor in our culture. Okay Mr. Kushner, how about a similar book for blondes, Jewish American Princesses, Poles, ad infinitum.
