Two lawyers, Chuck and Larry, were having a heated exchange during a trial. The judge asked both lawyers to approach the bench.

"Your Honor," said Chuck, "I objected because my distinguished colleague Larry, was badgering the witness. It is obvious he has never heard of the Bill of Rights."

"Rubbish!" snapped Larry. "I happen to know them by heart."

Chuck rolled his eyes in disbelief. "Do you now? Well, Larry, I have a hundred dollars that says you can't even tell me the first few words."

Larry smirked and accepted the challenge and began, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..."

"Darn," Chuck interrupted, fishing the money from his pocket, "I didn't think you'd know it."
