“I’m a lawyer.” / “Honest?” / “No, the regular kind.”

“I’m a lawyer.” “Honest?” “No, the regular kind” is a lawyer joke that was posted on the newsgroup alt.bbs.wildcat on February 15, 1996. The joke is that the speaker had meant “Honest?” as in “Really?”, but that the lawyer understood the question to be if he/she is a rare honest lawyer.

The joke has also applied to politicians.  “I’m a Tory politician.” — “Honest?” — “No, the regular kind” was posted on Twitter by Redtildead on February 20, 2014. “I’m a Politician.”—“Honest?”—“No, the regular kind” was posted on Twitter by Rofl Republic #TeamKisan on March 8, 2014.

WHICH KIND?
Two small boys, not yet old enough to be in school, were overheard talking at the zoo one day.
“My name is Billy. What’s yours?” asked the first boy.
“Tommy,” replied the second.
“My Daddy’s an accountant. What does your Daddy do for a living?” asked Billy.
Tommy replied, “My Daddy’s a lawyer.”
“Honest?” asked Billy.
“No, just the regular kind,” replied Tommy.
