Humor the Hook

LOL, a line from the old movie Hook, which is still one of my favorites due to it’s message of rising above what life has made of you.

I’m watching it on cable right now, and Peter is at the banquette honoring Wendy for her work with her orphanage and he leads off hos speech with a lawyer joke.  Doesn’t seemto fit the moment other than Peter is a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at that point (corporate raiding pirate, LOL).

Anyway, the joke was:

Lab scientists have started using lawyers instead of rats for many of their experiments.  There are two reasons for this.  First, the scientists get less attached to the lawyers.  Second, the scientists discovered that there are some things even rats won’t do.
