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

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

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 'Bessie'".

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?"
