Time for something light…

Lawyers for the Department of Transport were busily preparing their case in defense of the charge relating to the station owner’s lost prize Brahman bull. It had gone missing around the same time that the weekly train had gone through and, as far as the squatter was concerned, there was only one conclusion.

The government’s young top gun lawyer swung a deal, and the station owner was willing to settle out of court for half his claim. After he had signed the deal and the cheque was in his hands, the brash young lawyer, proud of his efforts, said, “Well, I can now tell you, off the record, that the driver had dozed off and the stoker was attending to something at the back of the tender!”

The squatter replied, “Crikey, and here was I worried about how I was going to say to the court that my bull came home this morning!”
