A Newfoundland farmer named Angus had
a car accident. He was hit by a truck owned
by the Eversweet Company.
In court, the Eversweet Company's hot-shot
solicitor was questioning Angus.
'Didn't you say to the RCMP at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?' asked the solicitor.
Angus responded: 'Well, I'll tell you what
happened. I had just loaded my favourite cow,
Bessie, into the... '
'I didn't ask for any details', the solicitor interrupted. 'Just answer the question.
Did you not say, at the scene of the accident,
Angus said, 'Well, I had just got Bessie into
the trailer and I was driving down the road.... '
The solicitor interrupted again and said,
'Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact
that, at the scene of the accident, 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 Angus' answer and said to the solicitor:
'I'd like to hear what he has to say about his
favourite cow, Bessie'.
Angus thanked the Judge and proceeded.
'Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie,
my favorite cow, into the trailer and was driving
her down the road when this huge Eversweet
truck and trailer came through a stop sign and
hit my trailer right in the side. I was thrown
into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the
other. I was hurt, very bad like, and didn't want
to move.. However, I could hear old Bessie
moaning and groaning. I knew she was in
terrible pain just by her groans.
Shortly after the accident, a policeman on a
motorbike turned up. He could hear Bessie
moaning and groaning so he went over to her.
After he looked at her, and saw her condition,
he took out his gun and shot her between
Then the policeman came across the road, gun
still in hand, looked at me, and said,
'How are you feeling?'
'Now what the Fuck would you say?'
