A man is in dire need of a heart transplant. So he goes down to the local "Organs 'R Us" and makes his request. The clerk informs him that he has only three hearts. He says, "This one is from a 35 year old that lived a reasonably clean life, no smoking, occasional drink, some excercise, and it's $10,000. This one is from a 25 year old that never smoked, never drank, never used drugs, jogged 5 miles a day, and it's $25,000. This discolored one is from a 55 year old who smoked 3 packs a day, drank 5 martinis a day, frequently used cocaine and never excercised and it's on sale for $100,000." "Wait a minute, why is the unhealthy heart the most expensive?", asked the shopper. "Because, it belonged to a lawyer, it's never been used."
