In Contempt The judge asked the defendant to please stand. "You are charged with murdering a school teacher with a chain saw." From out in the gallery, a man shouts, "Lying *******!" "Silence in the court!" the judge says to the man who shouted. He turns to the defendant and says, "You are also charged with killing a paperboy with a shovel." "Damn tightwad," the same man in the gallery blurted out. "I said QUIET!" yelled the judge. To the defendant, "You are also charged with killing a mailman with an electric drill." "You jackass!" the man from the gallery yelled. The judge thundered at the man in the galley, "If you don't tell me right now the reasons for your outbursts, I'll hold you in contempt!" The man answered back, "I've lived beside that man for ten years now, but do you think he ever had a tool when I needed to borrow one?!"
