The Judges Verdict (joke)

The judge said to the double-homicide defendant, “You’re charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer.” A voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out, “You bastard!” The judge ignored the outburst and continued, “You’re also charged with beating your mother-in-law to death with a hammer.” The same voice yelled out, “You lying bastard!” The judge looked sternly at the man who yelled and said, “Sir, you may be angry and frustrated by this man’s crimes, but one more outburst from you and I’ll find you in contempt of court. Do you understand?” The man replied, “I’m sorry, your Honor, but I’ve lived next door to that bastard for the past fifteen years and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he didn’t have one!”
