("No, I do NOT want to hear a funny attorney joke!" he snaps.)

* The French words for lawyer and avocado are essentially the same (avocat). Hilarity ensues when translating French recipes for guacamole into English using computer software--they end up instructing you to do things like "chop up three lawyers and then put them in a blender".
