A farmer named Clyde

A farmer named Clyde had a car accident. In court, the trucking
company's fancy lawyer was questioning Clyde. Didn't you say, at the
scene of the accident, 'I'm fine,' asked the lawyer? Clyde 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 fine!"? Clyde 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, yes or no.

" By this time, the Judge was fairly
interested in Clyde's answer and said to the lawyer, "I'd like to hear
what he has to say about his favorite mule, Bessie." Clyde thanked the
Judge and proceeded, "Well like 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 moans." "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, gun in hand, looked at me, and said "How are you feeling?" "Now
what the hell would you say?"
