A man was in court for a double murder, and the judge said, "You are charged withraping then beating your wife to death with a hammer."
A voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out, "You bast.ard!"
The judge continued, "You are also charged with raping and then beating your mother-in-law to death with a hammer."
Again, the voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out, "You damned bas.tard!"
The judge stopped, looked at the man in the back of the courtroom, and said, "Sir, I can understand your anger and frustration at this crime, but I will not have any more of these outbursts from you, or I shall charge you with contempt! I hope there will be no more problems,
The man at the back of the court stood up and responded, "For fifteen years, I have lived next door to that bast.ard, and every time I asked to borrow a hammer ... he said he never had one!"
