Seriously, what WOULD you say ?
A Minnesota farmer named Olie had a car accident. He was hit by a truck
owned by the Eversweet Company.
In court, the Eversweet Company's hot-shot attorney questioned him thus:
'Didn't you say to the state trooper
at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?"
Olie responded: 'vell, I'lla tell you vat happened dere. I'd yust loaded my
fav'rit cow, Bessie, into da... '
'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!'?'
Olie said, 'vell, I'd yust got Bessie into da trailer and I vas drivin' down
da road.... '
The lawyer interrupted again and said, 'Your Honor, I am trying to establish
the fact that, at the scene of the
this man told the
police 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 Olie's answer and said to
the attorney: 'I'd like to hear what
he has to say about his favorite cow, Bessie'.
Olie said: 'Tank you' and proceeded. 'vell as I vas saying, I had yust
loaded Bessie, my fav'rit cow, into de
Trailer and was drivin' her down de road vin dis huge Eversweet truck and
trailer came tundering tru a stop
sign and hit me trailer right in da side by golly. I was trown into one
ditch and Bessie was trown into da udder
By yimminy yahosaphat I vas hurt, purty durn bad, and didn't want to move.
An even vurse dan dat, I could
hear old Bessie a moanin' and a groanin'. I knew she vas in terrible pain
yust by her
after da accident, a policeman on a motorbike turned up. He could
hear Bessie a moanin' and a
groanin' too, so he vent over to her. After he looked at her, and saw her
condition, he took out his
Gun and shot her right between the eyes.
Den da policeman came across de road, gun still in hand, looked at me, and
said, 'How are you feelin'?'
'Now wot da heck vud you say?'
