I have one that I heard while awaiting getting off a Parking Offence a few years back. (It's a bit long.....)

Clerk of Court . "Call George Johnson."

Guy walks down. (big, black afro, pimp shuffle etc..)

Clerk begins to read charge.

"You are George Johnson of...."

"I'M innocent"!!

Clerk

" No, sir, I shall first read out the charge; THEN you can plead;-

"You are George Johnson of 113..."

"Im innocent!!"

Judge.

"No sir. Please let the clerk read the charge out"

"You are George Johnson of"

"Im innocent!!!"

(By this time, everyone sitting in court is thinking...Who IS this idiot?!!!)

"You are George..."

"No, man, I'm INNOCENT Johnson. My brother is George; he couldn't come so I did"

Court collapses into muffled laughter.....!!!
