Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….  
A judge, bored and frustrated by a lawyer’s tedious arguments, had
made numerous rulings to speed the trial along. The attorney had
bristled at the judge’s orders, and their tempers grew hot. Finally,
frustrated with another repetition of arguments he had heard many
times before, the judge pointed to his ear and said, “Counselor, you
should be aware that at this point, what you are saying is just going
in one ear and out the other.” “Your honor,” replied the lawyer,
“That goes without saying. What is there to prevent it?” 😱😁😎
