Heart of Gold

A man has a heart attack and is brought to the hospital ER. The doctor tells him that he will not live unless he has a heart transplant right away. Another doctor runs into the room and says, "You're in luck, two hearts just became available, so you will get to choose which one you want. One belongs to an attorney and the other to a nonprofit social worker."

The man responds without blinking, "I want the attorney's heart."

The doctor says, "Wait! Don't you want to know a little about them before you make your decision?"

The man says, "I already know enough. The social worker will have a bleeding heart that's already overextended, but the attorney -- well, we know he never used his so it's in brand new condition."

Moral of the Story: We are defined by the work we do, but unfortunately, attorneys will never not be the butt of jokes.
