A Redneck & His Mule Bessie

Clyde, a farmer in Alabama, 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 Clyde.

"Didn't you say at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?'" asked the

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

Clyde said, "Well, yes, but I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I
was driving down the road..."

moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans.

"About that time 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 and said, 'And, how are YOU feeling?' What would you have said?"
