Clyde, a farmer from Palmer, Alaska, decided his injuries from
the accident were serious enough to take the trucking company (responsible
for the accident) to court.
In court the trucking company's fancy lawyer was questioning Clyde. "Didn't
you say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine,'" asked the lawyer. Clyde
responded, "Well I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite
mule Bessie into the..."
"I didn't ask for any details," the lawyer interrupted. "Just answer the
question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'" Clyde
said, "Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down
the road..."
The lawyer interrupted again and said, "Judge, I am trying to establish the
fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman
on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he
is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to
simply answer the question."
By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Clyde's answer and said to
the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule
Clyde thanked the Judge and proceeded, "Well as I was saying, I had just
loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down
the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and
smacked my truck right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie
was thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn't want to move.
However, I could hear ole Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in
terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident a Highway
Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he
went over to her. After he looked at her he took out his gun and shot her
between the eyes.
Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked
at me. He said, " How are you feeling?"
