The end of lawyers

TheCreepMuch chat yesterday at chambers tea about a broadcast predicting the end of lawyers. “I hardly think that society will be able to do without us to solve their problems,” commented OldSmoothie.

“Ah, but they say that we’ll all be replaced by computers,” added TheCreep.
“Mightn’t be such a bad thing for some of us,” said BusyBody to UpTights in a stage whisper heard by everyone.
“I heard that, you know,” said TheCreep sulkily.
“But why would you think that was directed at you?” chirped BusyBody, clearly up for mischief as she turned back to UpTights and continued at the same volume: Anyway, I’m sure he’ll find someone to suck up even when all the QCs are gone.”
“You really think you’re so clever, don’t you?” said TheCreep as his cheeks started to flush.
Then TheVamp, sensing trouble, stepped in to shut him up: “Oh, Mr CreepyWeppy. You always look so sweet when your little cutesy wutesy little cheeks blush like that. Don’t you worry that goody goody little head of yours. Of course they’re not going to get rid of lawyers. I mean, you don’t think we complicate everything just for nothing, do you? It’s for the precise reason that if anyone ever tries to get rid of us, there’ll be no-one left to know how to undo the mess we’ve created.”
