425) Tradutore, traditore (mais do que nunca...)

Algumas camadas geológicas mais abaixo (ou talvez até em algum dos meus blogs precedentes), eu coloquei algumas piadas de advogados, ou melhor de corte, que me haviam sido enviadas como se fossem, supostamente, casos efetivamente ocorridos em cortes brasileiras.
Descubro agora que se trata, mal e porcamente (e o termo se aplica) de traduções mal feitas de piadinhas de cortes americanas, que talvez também são inventadas e reaproveitadas de outras fontes, que aparentemente se perdem na noite dos tempos.
Em todo caso, transcrevo aqui o original, remetendo os curiosos ao site de onde as recuperei agora: http://xmb.stuffucanuse.com/xmb/viewthread.php?tid=475

True statements in court...
