Lawyer and Judge

JUDGE: You are extremely offensive, young man.

LAWYER: As a matter of fact, we both are, and the only difference between us is that I am trying to be and you can’t help it.

The young lawyer was Frederick Smith (1872-1930), who became a close friend of Winston Churchill and 1st Earl of Birkenhead.
