This sign, spotted on Church Street in Martinsville, Virginia, brings all kinds of thoughts to mind (none, we’re sure, as intended by the guy who actually had the gall to put the sign outside his law office). An honest lawyer? Can such a thing exist? We’d say the changes of finding an honest lawyer are about as good as proving Bill Clinton’s honesty or Brittney Spears’ virginity. Perhaps the saddest commentary on this sign is the fact that its owner felt the need to try and convince the public that such an extinct species actually exists. But it could have been worse. He could have claimed to be an “Honest Politician.” Maybe that’s why most politicians are also lawyers.
