Wits Corner, August 2014

Farmer Seamus was up in court following an accident, fighting the insurance company. They had a hot shot lawyer questioning Seamus.

“Now, didn’t you say to the police at the scene of the accident that you were fine?”

“Well I’ll tell you what happened. I had my old cow Bessie in the pickup and was….”

“I didn’t ask for details. Did you or did you not say to the police that you were fine?”

“Anyway, I’m driving carefully along so as not to disturb Bessie when this truck drives straight into me….”

“Your honour, this man is suing my client, and I’m trying to get him to answer a question. Will you please caution him?”

“Um well”, said the judge “I rather want to hear the story of Bessie the cow.”

Seamus thanked the judge and continued. “After the accident Bessie was in a really bad way in one ditch and I could hear her groans of pain, and I was hurt bad and a bit bloody in the other ditch. Along came a police patrolman who saw it all. He first went to Bessie, took one look at her and drew his revolver and shot her between the eyes. He then ran over to me, with the revolver still in his hand, took a look at me and asked if I was alright. Now, what would you have said?”
