I am now retired at the early age of 57, this is NOT because I’m so rich that I could afford to do so, but rather because of...

No Hammer ...

A man was in court for a double murder, and the judge said, “You are charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer.”

A voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out, “You bastard!”

The judge continued, “You are also charged with beating your mother-in-law to death with a hammer.”

Again, the voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out, “You damned bastard!”

The judge stopped, looked at the man in the back of the courtroom, and said, “Sir, I can understand your anger and frustration at this crime, but I will not have any more of these outbursts from you, or I shall
charge you with contempt! Now is that a problem?”

The man at the back of the court stood up and responded, “For fifteen years, I have lived next door to that bastard, and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he never had one!”
