Quote of the Week:
“A gifted teacher is as rare as a gifted doctor and makes far less money!!” – unknown
Farmer Joe’s truck was hit by a semi. He sued the trucking company. In court, the trucking company’s lawyer asked Joe, “Did you tell the highway patrol officer at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’?”
Farmer Joe responded, “Well, lemme tell you what happened. I had my favorite mule, Bessie, loaded in the back–”
The lawyer interrupted, “I didn’t ask for details. Just answer the question. Did you say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’?!”
Farmer Joe started in again, “Well, I had just loaded Bessie into the truck and I was driving–”
The lawyer interrupted again. “Judge, I’m trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the patrolman on the scene that he was fine. Weeks after the accident, he sues my client. I believe he’s a fraud. Please order him to answer the questions.”
But by this time, the judge was getting interested in Farmer Joe’s story. “Actually, I’d like to hear what he has to say about his mule myself.”
Farmer Joe said, “Thank you, judge. Now, as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into my truck and I was driving her down the road when this huge semi ran a stop sign and smashed into my truck. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I hurt so bad I couldn’t move. And I could hear ol’ Bessie moaning and groaning, too. Along came this highway patrol officer. He heard Bessie moaning, went over to her, looked her over, took out his pistol, and shot her dead. And then he came across the road with his gun still in his hand, looked at me, and said, ‘Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?'”
