“Why don’t lawyers play hide-and-seek?"/"Nobody will look for them.”

A lawyer riddle is:

Q: Why don’t lawyers play hide-and-seek?
A: Nobody will look for them.


The lawyer joke has been cited in print since at least 1987. 


10 September 1987, Seattle (WA) Times “Know some lawyers? You could read this column to them” by Emmett Watson, pg. F1:
“Why can’t lawyers play hide-and-seek?” It is the nature of lawyer jokes that the teller always answers his own question: “Lawyers can’t play hide-and-seek because nobody will look for them.”
