Two lawyers walk into a bar . . .
Slate is running a multi-part series on humor, co-authored by a journalist and a professor at Colorado who has developed and is testing a new theory of what makes something funny. In the latest entry, they write that lawyer jokes are unique to the United States. One explanation: "No other country is so rooted in the sanctity of law—and in no other country are those who practice it so reviled."

Huh? That's just wrong, lawyers are reviled in a lot of places. England and Ireland certainly have lawyer jokes.
