Is this supposed to be funny? Did I miss something?

It's a large-scale attempt to drown a thousand lawyers. I did chuckle.

I liked this one!
There's a well-traveled joke that goes:

What do you call a thousand lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A good start.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

I don't understand, why did Zach decide to commit suicide? And aren't there better ways to go out than death by lawyer?

It's a reference to another joke - that's what's funny. I was confused because I thought it should be funny on its own.

He's banking on being able to keep appealing until he dies of natural causes.

Are there honestly so many people who haven't heard that joke?

Even if you've heard the joke, it doesn't mean you'll automatically remember it quickly enough to find the comic funny.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed 2pi. I thought it was part of the joke on my first read-through.

I understood that it was referencing a joke. Still not funny, and I still don't get how it is supposed to be funny. It would be like me describing the great free-range coops that this one farmer has and expecting everyone to laugh at my spin on 'why did the chicken cross the road?'. Stupid.
