    GIFT OF GAB
    An Advocate retired and became a Law College Professor.
    A student group asked him
    "Sir, why do we need an Advocate ?"
    The Advocate replied:
    "I will present an example for this! Suppose two people come to me, one is very clean and the other is very dirty. I will advise both of them to get clean and take bath."
    " Now you guys tell me, who among them will go and take a shower ?? "
    One student said: The one who is dirty will take a shower."
    The Advocate said: No, the clean person will do it, because he has the habit of bathing, while the dirty does not know the importance of cleaning... Now tell me who will take a shower ?? "
    Another student said: The clean person"
    The Advocate said: No, the dirty person will take a bath because he is the one who needs cleaning... Now tell who will take a shower ?? "
    The two students said: The one who is dirty will take a shower."
    The Advocate said: No, both will take a bath because the clean person has a habit of bathing, while the dirty one needs a bath. Now tell me again who will take a shower ?? "
    Now the students speak together: Both of them will take a shower."
    The Advocate said: Wrong, no one will take a bath, because the dirty is not used to bathing, whereas clean one does not need to bath . So now tell me once again, who will take a shower ?"
    One student politely said:
    "Sir, you give a different answer every time and every answer seems to be correct. How do we know the correct answer ?? "
    The Advocate said:
    "This is why you need an Advocate. It is not important what the reality is.
    The important thing is, how many possible possibilities and arguments can you offer to prove your point -
    AND keep Collecting fees for it.

    I think silver tongue is more to do with eloquency than the gift of gab. Am I right?
