Good Morning!~It's a lovely day here in Iowa~the farmer's continue to rush to get the corn in as the weather has delayed harvest this year. God Bless them, as they are working day and night. My husbands' family originally settled in Minnesota, and have farmed there for generations. They are good and honest salt of the earth folks who rely on God and common sense for their daily bread. My hubby and I just love getting together with them. I received this cute joke the other day.....just had to share it with you!
Ole's car was hit by a truck in an accident. In court, the trucking company's lawyer was questioning Ole.
"Didn't you say, sir, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm Fine,?' asked the lawyer.
Ole responded, "Vell, I'll tell you vat happened. I had yust loaded my favorite mule, Bessie, into da...."
"I didn't ask you any details" the lawyer interrupted. "Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, "I'm fine?"
Ole said, :Vell, I had yust got Bessie into da trailer and I vas 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 Ole's answer and said to the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule, Bessie."
Ole thanked the Judge and proceeded. "Vell, as I vas saying, I had yust loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into da trailer and vas driving her down da higvay ven dis huge semi-truck and trailer ran da stop sign and smacked my truck right in da side. I vas trown into one ditch and Bessie vas trown into da other. I vas hurting real bad and didn't vant to move. However, I could hear Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape yust by her groans. Shortly after da accident da Higheay Patrolman, he came to da scene...He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he vent over to her...
"After he looked at her and saw her fatal condition he took out his gun and shot her right 'tween da eyes.
Den da Patrolman, he came across da road, gun still smoking, looked at me and said, "How are you feeling?"
"Now vat DA heck vould YOU say?"
