Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A man’s wife went missing and, being that everyone knew he and his wife were in a big fight, he was accused of murdering her and disposing of the body.
Witness after witness came to the stand testifying to all sorts of horrible threats the accused had made against his wife. Things were looking quite dim for the man when his lawyer stood and approached the jury.
“Ladies and gentleman of the jury, I have something quite exciting to tell you. If you would all please direct your attention to the door behind me on my left you will see the supposedly dead women walk in on her own two feet.”
There was a loud murmuring in the courtroom as all eyes turned toward the door.
“Ladies and gentleman,” said the lawyer after a few seconds of anxious waiting, “to be honest with you, nobody is going to be walking through that door. However, from the fact your eyes all turned toward the door, it is quite obvious you are not certain beyond a reasonable doubt of my client’s guilt.”
To the lawyer’s great surprise, the jury returned a guilty verdict.
“But how could you say he is guilty? Didn’t I prove it to you?” questioned the lawyer.
“It’s true that we all turned toward the door,” one female juror explained, “but there was one person who didn’t.”
“Who was that?” demanded the indignant lawyer.
