Joke: borrow a hammer

A man is in court. The Judges says, "On the 3rd August you are accused of killing
your wife with a hammer, how do you plead?"
"Guilty", said the man in the dock.
At this point a man at the back of the court stood up and shouted "You dirty rat!"
The Judge asked the man to sit down and to refrain from making any noise.
The Judge continued "and that also on the 17th September you are accused of
killing your son by beating him to death with a hammer, how do you plead"?
"Guilty", said the man in the dock.
Again the same man at the back stood up and shouted even louder, "You dirty
rotten stinking rat"!!
At this point the Judge called the man to the bench and said, "I have already asked

you to be quiet, if you continue with these outbursts, I will have to charge you with
contempt of court. I can understand your feelings, but what relationship do you
have to this man?"
He replied "He is my next door neighbor.”
The Judge replied, "I can understand your feelings then, but you must refrain from
any comments".
The man replied "NO, Your Honor, you don't understand.
Twice I have asked if I could borrow a hammer, and BOTH TIMES he said he didn't
have one"!
