A Little Bit of Humor...
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
company's fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.
"Didn't you say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine,'?" asked the lawyer. Farmer
Joe responded, "Well, I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie
"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 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
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."
Joe thanked the Judge and proceeded, "Well, as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie
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 ol' 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, 'Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her.'
"Then he said, 'How are you feeling?'"
