“What do you get when you cross a lawyer with a demon from hell?"/"Another lawyer.”

A lawyer joke is:

Q: What do you get when you cross a lawyer with a demon from hell?
A: Another lawyer.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 1989, when it was published in the Chicago (IL) Tribune.


18 October 1989, Chicago (IL) Tribune, “It was a long shot, anyhow” by Richard Phillips, sec. 1, pg. 18, col. 5:
Question: What do you get when you cross a lawyer with a demon from hell?

27 October 1989, The Gazette (Montreal, Quebec), “She’s sick of denying she’s sick” by Doug Camilli, pg. B6:

For the general public the answer to such question is unsurprising: “another lawyer” (http://jokes4all.net/hell.html). There are numerous similar kind of jokes through which the public express their frustration and mistrust of the legal profession.
