When his name was called late in the afternoon, he stood before the judge, only to hear that court would be adjourned for the rest of the afternoon and he would have to return the next day.

“What for?” he snapped at the judge.

His Honor, equally irked by a tedious day and the sharp query, roared out loud: “Twenty dollars contempt of court! That’s why!”

Then, noticing the man checking his wallet, the judge relented. “That’s all right. You don’t have to pay now.”

The young man replied, “I know. I’m just seeing if I have enough for two more words.”

She replied, “Everything but my earrings.”
