Legal Cheek's associate editor Emily Jupp, who by day works as a journalist in the digital team at The Independent, tells me that pictures of animals tend to generate particularly high web traffic – not that the Indy ever resorts to such tricks, of course.
So Lawyer Dog's success should come as no surprise. Lawyer Dog is, by the way, a dog who has been hilariously dressed up as a lawyer! But the fun doesn't stop there. Lawyer Dog comes up with the most fabulous wisecracks, too.
In no way seeking to exploit the animal = lots of hits rule, I bring you more fun-packed Lawyer Dog scenes below...
Lawyers aren’t always that funny. Remember the "iPad oxygen" quip made by Stephen Miller QC at an inquest for a man who’d died in hospital after equipment failures?
But I’m happy to report that yesterday Miller’s fellow barrister Andrew Dallas proved some members of the legal profession have a decent sense of humour.
After Karel Novotny, who speaks no English, had his hearing at Bradford Crown Court adjourned for a second time earlier this week because, once again, no interpreter had turned up, Dallas asked:
“Is it quicker if I learned Czech?”
After the laughter subsided, Judge Durham Hall said a wasted costs order would be made against Applied Language Solutions subject to any further representations from them.
This morning it emerged that Kim Kardashian is looking to go out with a lawyer.
Having broken up with basketball star Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage last October, socialite Kardashian, 31, is ready to move on.
"[I'm looking for] a lawyer or businessman. Something different," she told Female First.
I wasn't surprised by Kim's decision to target her hunt for love in this way. After all, lawyers have a lot going for them...
As a coroner struggled to work her new iPad at an inquest for a man who had died in hospital after equipment failures, Stephen Miller QC sniffed an opportunity for a brilliant gag.
The technophobe coroner should "make sure the oxygen switch was switched on", quipped 1 Crown Office Row’s resident comic genius, who was representing the NHS at the hearing.
The deceased’s grieving family, seated nearby, overheard the remark and asked for an apology. But Miller was so overcome with mirth at his world-class joke that he “laughed in my face and then walked away”, according to the dead man’s son.

One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”
“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied. “We have to eat grass.”
“Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the lawyer said.
