“Why didn’t Cupid shoot at the lawyer’s heart?"/"Because Cupid can’t hit a target that small.”

A popular Valentine’s Day lawyer joke is:

Q: Why didn’t Cupid shoot his arrow at the lawyer’s heart?
A: Because even Cupid can’t hit a target that small.


The riddle has been cited in print since at least 2006.
