A butcher was minding his store one day, when a dog ran in and stole a cut of meat off his counter. The butcher recognized the dog as belonging to his neighbor who was a lawyer. He called up his neighbor and said, "Your dog stole meat from my store. I believe you owe me for the meat."
The lawyer said "You are correct. How much was the meat?"
The butcher told him that it cost $4.50, the lawyer replied that the butcher should receive a check for that amount in the mail the next day.
The next day, the check arrived in the mail for $4.50, with a bill attached for $150 "for legal consultation."
