The case of crabs and a blond air stewardess

A lawyer boarded an airplane in Johannesburg with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blond stewardess to take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew’s refrigerator. He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning in a very stern manner that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.

Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behavior. Shortly before landing in Capetown, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, “Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs, in Johannesburg, please raise your hand.

Not one hand went up …. so she took them home and ate them.

Two lessons here:

1. Lawyers aren’t as smart as they think they are.
2. Blonds aren’t as dumb as most folk think.
