Ole’s car was hit by a truck in an accident. In court, the trucking
company’s lawyer was questioning Ole. Didn’t you say, sir, at the scene of the accident, I’m fine? Asked the lawyer.
Ole responded, Vell, I’ll tell you vat happened. I had yust loaded
my favorite mule, 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?
Ole said, Vell, I had yust got Bessie into da trailer and I vas
driving down da 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.
By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Ole’s answer and
said to the lawyer, I’d like to hear what he has to say about his
favorite mule, Bessie.
Ole thanked the Judge and proceeded. Vell, as I vas saying, I had
yust loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into da trailer and vas
driving her down da highvay ven dis huge semi-truck and trailer ran
da stop sign and smacked my truck right in da side. I vas trown into
one ditch and Bessie vas trown into da other. I vas hurting real bad
and didn’t vant to move. However, I could hear Bessie moaning and
groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape yust by her groans.
Shortly after da accident da Highway Patrolman, he came to da
scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he vent over to
her. After he looked at her and saw her condition he took out his
gun and shot her right tween da eyes.
Den da Patrolman, he came across da road, gun still smoking, looked
at me and said, How are you feeling?
Now vat da hell vould YOU say?
