Hey, let’s get serious.
This is a humour site.

First, let’s kill all the lawyer jokes

Shakespeare did not quite word it this way, but enough about Shakespeare. I’m a retired lawyer who is also a humourist. This combination has lead to me to be accused of being an oxymoron.  

Over the years I have written numerous articles and published two books. One is entitled Birth, Death and Other Trivialities:  A Humorous Philosophical Look at the Human Condition.  The second and most recent is Poutine on the Orient Express: An Irreverent Look at Travel, which I'm unapologetically promoting here.

So, what the heck is this website for? One, hopefully there are parts that will make you laugh. Two, maybe you'll buy one or both of my books. Bless you. Three, you might ask me to come out and speak at your event.

Like comedian Henny Youngman once said, “Live your life like a fried egg- sunny side up!”

What am I good for?

  • A Mouse, A Trap and Me- A discussion about mediating with your wife and daughter as to how to get rid of a mouse, humanely and to their complete satisfaction. (Globe and Mail)

  • It's nothing personal, Lot 6  A story about buying a house in a subdivision where the builder calls all the purchasers not by their names, but by their house lot number. (Toronto Star)

  • A legal career’s comic turn  Can lawyers retire and become humourists? Actually, we are not retired; we are amused. (Just Magazine-Ontario Bar Association)

  • The crying judge: Compassion does not equal bias  All about judges with hearts. (The Lawyer's Daily)

 

The latest
from my blogs:

    We have enjoyed an interesting few days in Ontario, notwithstanding.  As Oliver Twist said, "I would like some more, please. " 

     Some of us like Premier Ford’s invocation of the notwithstanding clause to override the court's ruling regarding the government’s decision to cull the Toronto City Council, and others don’t....

What they say. Yes, really. I'm not joking here. They said this.

“Your speech was amusing, highly entertaining and at times thought-provoking. We especially appreciated that you tailored your material so that it was appropriate and interesting to [an] audience of judges and their spouses.”

Justice Russell Juriansz,
Court of Appeal for Ontario
