Why you need a good divorce lawyer

Never let it be said that divorce lawyers don't have a sense of humour. Today I received this email from Andrew Isaacs, a solicitor in Doncaster:

A man was driving home one evening and realized that it was his daughter's birthday and he hadn't bought her a present. He drove to Frenchgate and ran to a shop there and he asked the store manager "How much is that new Barbie in the window?"

The Manager replied, "Which one? We have 'Barbie goes to the Nuffield Gym & Health Club' for £19.95 ....'Barbie goes to the Law Society Ball' for £19.95 ....'Barbie goes shopping at Frenchgate' for £19.95 ....'Barbie goes to the beach' for £19.95 ....'Barbie goes to the Bistro Nightclub' for £19.95 ....and 'Divorced Barbie' for £375.00".

"Why is the Divorced Barbie £375.00, when all the others are £19.95"? Dad asked surprised.

The Manager replied "Divorced Barbie had a good divorce lawyer so she comes with Ken's car, Ken's House, Ken's boat, Ken's dog, Ken's cat and Ken's furniture."
