A lawyer with a wife and 12 children needed to move. His rental agreement was terminated by the owner who wanted to reoccupy the home. He was having difficulty finding a new house. When he revealed he had 12 children, no one would rent him a home. They thought the children would destroy the place.

He couldn't say he had no children, because he couldn't lie, and we all know lawyers cannot and do not lie. So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids. He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with a real estate agent.

He liked one of the homes and the price was right. The agent asked: "How many children do you have?

He answered: "Twelve."

The agent asked, "Where are the others?"

The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look answered, "They're in the cemetery with their mother."

MORAL: It's not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words. And don't forget, most politicians are former lawyers.
