A funny for Friday

You know, I get about 3gazillion (3gazillion - that's a three followed by a billion zeros for those of you that aren't familiar with how much 3gazillion is) jokes emailed to me every week. Most of them aren't funny, a few are what you would call "groaners", but once in a while I get a good one. I just have to share it.

It goes something like this:

A big-city lawyer went duck hunting out in Texas. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence.

As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.

The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it." The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the United States and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Texas. We settle small disagreements like this . . . with the 'Three Kick Rule.'"

The lawyer asked, "What is the 'Three Kick Rule'?" The farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurred on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up."

The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney.

His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees!

His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth.

The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow patty.

The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said: "Okay, you old fart. Now it's my turn."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck."

Oh my goodness, I just crack myself up somethimes.

I am knitting on something, I plan on having it finished this weekend. If it works out the way I want it to I will post some pictures. I am not working with a pattern, though, so it could just as easily go badly.

Please take a second to answer the poll I have added to my sidebar and by all means encourage others to answer it too.

Have a good weekend!!!

Love that joke! We live in a rural part of Kentucky and I could actually picture that happening! Good one!

I took your sidebar poll, and would love to hear how the real live version ended up, possibly after the smoke clears! LOL

hey hey, didn't I send that to you?
(or not...I know I got it in my emails a while back, it was pretty funny)
As to the question in the sidebar, my response would've been 'WTF!??' and been upset for a few minutes but then...I'd settle in for some quiet time to knit and do whatever pleased me..the 'wtf' would've been from 'worrying' you know.
