Please Answer the Question

Image result for pic of upset judges

The lawyer was cross-examining a witness. “Isn’t it true,“ he began, “that you were given $5000 to throw this case?”

The witness did not answer. Instead, he just stared out the window as though he hadn’t heard the question. The attorney repeated himself, again getting the same reaction, the same no response. Finally, the judge spoke to the witness, “Please answer the question.”

“Oh,” said the startled witness, “I’m sorry your honor. I thought he was talking to you.”
