George Zimmerman Trial Starts Off With Terrible Knock Knock Joke [VIDEO]

On Monday morning, the George Zimmerman trial got under way in Orlando. Zimmerman has plead not guilty to second degree murder after shooting and killing 17 year old Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012. Zimmerman could face life in prison if convicted.

Zimmerman’s attorney, Don West, gave a rambling opening statement that started off with a, pretty much terrible, knock knock joke. First of all, there really aren’t any good knock knock jokes so dropping one during a murder trial is probably a terrible idea. Yet, trying to make light of a murder situation is exactly how Mr. West kicked things off. Needless to say, no one in the room (including the jurors) found the humor in Mr. West’s joke.

Good luck with your defense team, George. They’re off to a great start!
