I currently do work at a BigLaw firm (not as a lawyer, obviously), and most of the lawyers I interact with here aren't bad people, so you guys are probably right. Yes, I would agree a lot of people on here aren't very funny. To me, what sells a joke or humor isn't always just the joke, but also the person's attitude/persona. And when they come off as an elitist or as arrogant, then it's pretty hard to find them funny.
better to be the worlds worst lawyer than the worlds best paralegal.
I suppose this is true.
That is absolutely not true. There are plenty of paralegals/legal assistants that make more money than lawyers, have a stronger professional reputation and put in less investment.
