Don West, a defense attorney for George Zimmerman, opened his statements with a knock knock joke, but heard crickets.

The joke suggested it was rare to find anyone who had not heard of Zimmerman, as the story of the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin caused enough media fervor for the judge in the case to sequester the jury.

West called out the jury for the lack of reaction before deciding for himself the joke was funny.
