Greetings, Everyone:

The following came in yesterday from an old RCAF buddy of mine, Ed
Middlemiss of Ottawa.  Enjoy.

Farmer Joe decided his injuries from the accident were serious enough to
take the trucking company to court.

In court, the trucking company's fancy lawyer was questioning farmer

"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 fine!'?"

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, "Your Honor, 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?"
