Law of Averages

The other day I was in a break room with the whole office staff at my firm. We were eating birthday pie.

I noticed I was the only guy in the room with any facial hair. I don't think there are a lot of bearded attorneys.

Case in point: If you do a google image search for "attorney beard" it will first ask if you meant "attorney board," before going on to provide you with lots of clean-faced attorneys with the last name "Beard." Like this guy...





Classifications intrigue me. I found the other day that I like reversing Jeff Foxworthy's premise to make a kind of anti-humor--jokes that are funny to me precisely because they aren't really funny.

Without further ado:

You are unlikely to be a redneck if...

1. You work in high finance.
2. You are the Editor-in-Chief of Yale Law Review.
3. You have an expansive and well diversified portfolio.

It goes on endlessly, but it never really gets any better. Back to work.

the worst case of Beard as a last name that I came across was a Dr. Beard in a Gynecology Clinic.

Did she/he have a hook hand?

If so, he/she really needs a career change...
