Shakey went to a psychiatrist. “Doc,” he said, “I’ve got trouble. Every time I get into bed, I think there’s somebody under it. I get under the bed, I think there’s somebody on top of it. Top, under, top, under. You gotta help me, I’m going crazy!”
“Let me take care of it,” said the shrink. “Come to me three times a week, and I’ll cure your fears.”
“How much do you charge?”
“A hundred dollars per visit.”
“I’ll sleep on it,” said Shakey.
Six months later the doctor met Shakey on the street. “Why didn’t you ever come to see me again?” asked the psychiatrist.
“For a hundred bucks a visit? A bartender cured me for ten dollars.”
“Is that so! How?”
“He told me to cut the legs off the bed!”

A man wanted to be dismissed from jury duty, but none of his excuses worked. So on the day of the trial, he asked to approach the bench. “Your Honor,” he said, “I must be excused from this trial because I am prejudiced against the defendant.”
“Oh?” the judge asked.
“Yes!” the man replied. “I took one look at the man in the blue suit with those beady eyes and that dishonest face, and I thought, ‘He’s a crook! He’s 100% guilty.’ So, your Honor, I couldn’t possibly be on this jury!”
The judge replied, “Get back in the jury box. You are just the kind of juror we are seeking–a good judge of character.”
The man protested, “How can you say that?”
“Because,” the judge said, “that man is the defendant’s lawyer.”
