Great line! I’ve seen it before, does anybody have a source? Maybe court records?
I have seen it before, but no sources. Here’s a link from all the way back in 2000, of someone asking on the snopes forums if these jokes are for real
I know some snappy coroner’s answers are included in Richard Lederer’s Anguished English.
This one sounds familiar, although I may be thinking of this one:
Q: How many autopsies have you performed on dead people?
A: All the autopsies I’ve performed have been on dead people.
I believe these are about as genuine as the aircraft mechanic and air traffic control ones are.
One of my favorites from years ago:
“There was a semen stain at the crime scene.”
“Was it male semen?”
Lowering the Bar (occasionally featured on BB) has more of this kind of courtroom humour.

Nice links. This quote grabbed my attention:
Rothstein: No, no, it’s not that. I didn’t want to draw attention. You don’t want to have marijuana dealing from the middle of your law office because I was running a giant Ponzi scheme out of there.
