A lawyer’s dog, running about
unleashed, beelines for a butcher shop and
steals a roast.
The butcher goes to the lawyer’s office and asks,
“If a dog running unleashed steals a piece of
meat from my store,
do I have a right to demand payment for the meat
from dog’s owner?”
The lawyer answers, “Absolutely.”
“Then you owe me $12.50. Your dog was loose and
stole a roast from me today.”
The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a
check for $12.50.
A few days later the butcher receives a letter
from the lawyer: “$45 due for consultation”.
