A fishing boat had crashed onto the rocks in heavy seas and
the lighthouse keeper was taken to court for negligence. His
lawyer asked him “Did you carry out your duties on the night
in question?”
The lighthouse keeper described his work, how the
machinery flashed the light on and off and how he
constantly watched the seas through his telescope. The jury
was so impressed with his testimony that they found him not
guilty.
Later, the lawyer congratulated him on being such a clear
speaker.
“Thank you,” said the lighthouse keeper, “but I was worried
for a while.”
“How come?” asked the lawyer.
“I was worried that someone was going to ask me if the light
was working.”
