    Smile Another great joke

    My kind of lawyer!! I seldom have any good words about lawyers but this
    one does have a sense of humor.

    A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client. He was told the
    loan would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to a parcel
    of property being offered as collateral. The title to the property dated
    back to 1803, which took the Lawyer three months to track down. After
    sending the information to the FHA, he received the following reply

    (Actual letter):

    "Upon review of your letter adjoining your client's loan application, we
    note that the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While we
    compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented
    the application, we must point out that you have only cleared title to the
    proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval can be
    accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its origin."

    Annoyed, the lawyer responded as follows (actual letter):

    "Your letter regarding title in Case No. 189156 has been received. I
    note that you wish to have title extended further than the 194 years
    covered by the present application. I was unaware that any educated
    person in this country, particularly those working in the property area,
    would not know that Louisiana was purchased, by the U.S., from France
    in 1803, the year of origin identified in our application. For the
    edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the land prior
    to U.S. ownership was obtained from France, which had acquired it by
    Right of Conquest from Spain. The land came into the possession of Spain
    by Right of Discovery made in the year 1492 by a sea captain named
    Christopher Columbus, who had been granted the privilege of seeking a
    new route to India by the Spanish monarch, Isabella.

    The good queen, Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful
    about titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing of
    the Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus' expedition. Now
    the Pope, as I'm sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus Christ, the
    Son of God, and God, it is commonly accepted, created this world.
    Therefore, I believe it is safe to presume that God also made that part
    of the world called Louisiana.

    God, therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back,
    to before the beginning of time, the world as we know it AND the FHA. I
    hope you find God's original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we have
    our **** loan?"

    The loan was approved.
