Feeling Fine

Farmer with cow

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 lawyer.

Farmer Joe responded, "Well. I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my best milk cow 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!'".

Farmer Joe said, "Well, I had just got the cow 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 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."

Joe thanked the Judge and proceeded, "Well, as I was saying, I had just loaded the cow 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 the cow was thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn't want to move.  However, I could hear that cow moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans.

"Pretty soon after the accident a Highway Patrolman showed up. He could hear the cow 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 cow was in such bad shape I had to shoot her.  How are you feeling ?'"
