On The Stand  (# 218)

A lawyer was cross-examining a doctor about whether he had checked the pulse of the deceased before he signed the death certificate. "No", the doctor replied. "I did not check the pulse." "And did you listen for a heartbeat?" "No I did not", the doctor said. "So", said the lawyer, "when you signed the death certificate, you had not taken steps to make sure he was dead." To this the doctor replied, "Well, let me put it this way. The man's brain was in a jar on my desk but, for all I know, he could be out practicing law somewhere."
