$5000 for three questions
A man walks into a lawyer’s office. “I have a problem with my neighbor. But before we talk about that, I need to know: how much do you charge?”
Says the lawyer, “well, I have a very simple fee structure. You pay me $5000, and you can ask me three questions.”
“$5000 for three questions? That seems awfully steep”, says the potential client.
“Yes”, says the lawyer. “Now, where do I send your bill?”
