A Child's Truth
With a young child on the stand, the district attorney knew he needed to start with some simple questions.
"If I were to tell you that this pen was red, would that be the truth or a lie?" he asked.
"The truth," said the child.
"Very good!" said the D.A. "And if I were to say that dogs could talk, would that be the truth or a lie?"
"The truth," said the child again.
"Really?" asked the D.A. "Dogs can talk? What do they say?"
"I don't know," the child answered. "I don't talk dog."
