Brain dead

I've just received one of those emails that does the rounds, usually containing jokes. This one contained quotes from an American publication 'Disorder in the Court: Legal Laughs, Court Jests and Just Jokes Culled from the Nation's Justice System', and I thought I'd share here one quote I rather liked:

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure ?
WITNESS : No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.
