A Lawyer never lies

A lawyer, who had a wife and 12  children, needed to move because his  rental agreement was terminated by the owner who  wanted to reoccupy the home.
But he was having a lot of  difficulty finding a new house. When he said, he had 12  children, no one would rent a home to him  because they felt that the children would  destroy the place.
He couldn't say he had no  children, because he couldn't  lie.
Now we all know lawyers cannot,  and do not lie...
So, he sent his wife for a walk  to the cemetery with 11 of their kids.
He took the remaining one with  him to see rental homes with the real  estate agent.
He loved one of the homes and  the price was right -- the  agent asked:
"How many children do you  have?
He answered:  "Twelve."
The agent asked, "Where are the  others?"
 The lawyer, with his best  courtroom sad look answered "Well, they're in the cemetery  with their mother."

MORAL: It's not necessary  to lie, one only has to choose the  right words… 
and don't forget,  most politicians are  unfortunately lawyers.
