A: No. Q: What was he doing with the dog’s ears? A: Picking them up in the air. Q: Where was the dog at this time? A: Attached to the ears. Q: And lastly, Gary, all your responses must be oral. Ok? What school do you go to? A: Oral. Q: How old are you? A: Oral. Q: What is your relationship with the plaintiff? A: She is my daughter. Q: Was she your daughter on February 13, 1979? Q: What can you tell us about the truthfulness and veracity of this defendant? A: Oh, she will tell the truth. She said she’d kill that Sonofabitch — and she did! Q: Are you sexually active? A: No, I just lie there. Q: (Showing man picture.) That’s you? A: Yes, sir. Q: And you were present when the picture was taken, right? Attorney: Before you signed the death certificate, had you taken the pulse? Coroner: No. Attorney: Did you listen to the heart? Coroner: No. Attorney: Did you check for breathing? Coroner: No. Attorney: So, when you signed the death certificate, you weren’t sure the man was dead, were you? Coroner: Well, let me put it this way. The man’s brain was sitting in a jar on my desk. But I guess it’s possible he could be out there practicing law somewhere.
