A Successful Lawyer Had Never Donated To The Local Charity…

Funny Joke Of The Day

A local charity office realized that the organization had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.

“Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you did not give a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give back to the community in some way?”

The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, “First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?”

Embarrassed, the charity rep mumbled, “Um, no.”

The lawyer interrupts, “Or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?”

The stricken charity rep began to stammer out an apology but was interrupted again.

“Or that my sister’s husband died in a traffic accident,” the lawyer said, his voice rising in indignation, “leaving her penniless with three children?!”

The humiliated charity rep, completely beaten, said simply, “I had no idea.”

On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, “So if I don’t give any money to them, why should I give any to you?”
