Farmer Joe decided his injuries from the accident were serious enough to
take the trucking company (responsible for the accident) to court. In court
the trucking companies fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe. "Didn't you
say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine'?" said the lawyer.
Farmer Joe 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!'"
Farmer Joe 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 Farmer Joe's answer and said
to the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule
Joe 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 put her out
of her misery Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his
hand and looked at me. He said, "Your mule was in such bad shape I had to
shoot her - how are you feeling?"

-if you have to ask get out of the way-
Have you ever been stopped by a traffic cop and, while he was
writing a ticket or giving you a warning, you got the feeling that
he would just love to yank you out of the car, right through the
window, and smash your face into the front fender?...
