An attorney was sitting in his office late one night, when
the Devil appeared before him. The Devil told the lawyer,
"I have a proposition for you. You can win every case you
try, for the rest of your life. Your clients will adore you,
your colleagues will stand in awe of you, and you will make
embarrassing sums of money. All I want in exchange is your
soul, your wife's soul, your children's souls, the souls of
your parents, grandparents, and parents-in-law, and the
souls of all of your friends and law partners."
The lawyer thought about this for a moment, then asked,
"So, what's the catch?"
