A farmer sued a trucking company over injuries sustained during an accident with one of their trucks.
A young man named Joe went to court over some severe injuries suffered during an accident that involved a truck. On getting to court, the lawyer employed by the trucking company had just one question for the furious driver;
“Didn’t you say at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’?”
The question seemed to be lost on the driver who replied with,
“Well let me tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule into the…”
This reply was cut short by the counselor who seemed to be infuriated by the additional and unwanted message provided by Joe. The lawyer interrupted him by saying:
“I didn’t ask for any details, just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’?”
Now, the court was getting heated up, but the driver persisted,
“Well I had just got my mule into the trailer and I was driving down the road…”
The lawyer seemed to be losing his cool now, so he interrupted again.
“Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that this man told the police officer 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.”
The judge now had to get involved since he was also curious to know the end of Joe's story, so he said:
“I’d like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule.”

The driver appreciated the Judge and now completed his story.
“Well, as I was saying, I had just loaded my favorite mule into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck ran right into me. I was thrown into one ditch and my mule was thrown into the other. I could hear my mule moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans."
Once Joe got the attention of everybody in the courtroom, he continued:
"Then the officer came on the scene. He could hear my mule groaning so he went over to her. All of a sudden I heard a gunshot and then no more moaning. Then the officer came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked at me and said, ‘Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?’ What do you think I was going to say?”
Honestly, Joe seemed to be a pretty wise man. Here is another exciting joke that will lighten your mood.
