Q: How many lawyers does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Fifty four. Eight to argue, one to get a continuance, one to object, one to demur, two to research precedents, one to dictate a letter, one to stipulate, five to turn in their time cards, one to depose, one to write interrogatories, two to settle, one to order a secretary to change the bulb, and twenty-eight to bill for professional services.

Sounds like a similar scenario to stopping in the ER for the flu to get a shot. Everyone and his brother or sister want to pick, poke and probe to get their "billable hours" into the equation. God forbid either occupation should perform any more pro bono work than is required to maintain certification.

We have an attorney at church whom I don't strike up a conversation with (he has to start it), because I fear he would start the clock ticking.
