Jury Duty

For the first time in his life Moshe Gold, a busy jeweler receives a letter telling him he is to be on Jury Duty. On the appointed day, he joins many other prospective jurors in court. When his turn arrives, Moshe says to the judge, "I think it best you send me home, Mr. Judge. I'll be of no use to you."

"Please explain why you want me to excuse you from Jury Duty, Mr. Gold." asks the judge. “After all, it is your civic duty.”

"Because I'm prejudiced, that's why," replies Moshe. "I've always been a prejudiced person."

"Give me an example," says the judge.

"Well," replies Moshe, "I'm looking at the prisoner right now and I can say, without a shadow of doubt, that from the way he looks, he's absolutely, definitely guilty."

"Mr. Gold," says the judge, "the accused is not yet in court. The man you're looking at is the accused’s lawyer"
