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’?," questioned the lawyer.
Farmer Joe responded, "Well I’ll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the..."
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..."
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 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. How
are you feeling?"
It was then that I said, "I’m fine."
