We all have been in a situation where we do not know how to respond to a particular query. Mostly because we’re either confused or there really is no reasonable explanation for it. In an attempt to answer convincingly, we end up speaking goofily. Just the other way around, when it comes to accusing someone of a wrong-doing, we make an attempt to inquire in a manner that would allow us to obtain a detailed information about that scene. But sometimes, we lose track and forget the actual purpose behind what we’d started.This is how things usually turn out when the issue is casual, with no legal entities involved in it.
But, you’d be surprised to learn, that really isn’t the case. At times, even the lawyers have a tough time interrogating and of course, there are witnesses who aren’t able to justify the offence or situation the way they are expected to and the outcomes are very hilarious at times!
Still don’t believe it? Well, here are examples of some real life courtroom interrogations that would make you appreciate your level of intelligence:
1. These aren’t your Vivas, buddy!
Lawyer: “And lastly, Gary, all your responses must be oral. Ok? What school do you go to?”
Lawyer: “How old are you?”
2. Atleast, she got something in return!
Lawyer: “Did you tell your lawyer that your husband had offered you indignities?”
Witness: “He didn’t offer me nothing. He just said I could have the furniture.”
3. Do they teach English language in Law school, Mr. Lawyer?
Lawyer: “Was that the same nose you broke as a child?”
Witness: “I only have one, you know.”
Lawyer: “And who is this person you are speaking of?”
Witness: “My ex-widow said it.”
5. Now, that’s everyone, mate!
Lawyer: “What is your date of birth?”
Witness: “July 15th.”
Lawyer: “What year?”
Witness: “Every year.”
6. Well, that explains it all!
Lawyer: “Sir, what is your IQ?”
Witness: “Well, I can see pretty well, I think.”
7. How are you still on this planet then, witness?
Lawyer: “How many times have you committed suicide?”
Witness: “Four times.”
8. Oh lol, too bad!
Lawyer: “Any suggestions as to what prevented this from being a murder trial instead of an attempted murder trial?”
Witness: “The victim lived.”
9. Oh, dear!
Lawyer: “Officer, what led you to believe that the defendant was under the influence?”
Witness: “Because he was argumentary, and he couldn’t pronounciate his words.”
Lawyer: “Do you drink when you’re on duty?”
Witness: “I don’t drink when I’m on duty unless I come on duty drunk.”
Well, THAT was absolutely hilarious! I hope the Judge didn’t burst out laughing in the middle of the session!
